A SHORT SKETCH OF TAJIK GRAMMAR.
RASTORGUEVA, V.S.
PART OF A SERIES OF FOUR RUSSIAN-ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS OF GRAMMARS OF IRANIAN LANGUAGES, THIS BOOKLET DESCRIBES THE TAJIK LANGUAGE OF THE INHABITANTS OF TAJIK SSR, AND IS THE FIRST TO APPEAR IN ENGLISH. (THE ORIGINAL TEXT WAS A SUPPLEMENT TO THE RAHIMI-USPENSKAYA "TAJIK-RUSSIAN DICTIONARY," MOSCOW, 1954.) ALL TAJIK FORMS ARE GIVEN IN CYRILLIC ORTHOGRAPHY. IN ADDITION TO THE DESCRIPTION OF THE SOUND AND WRITING SYSTEMS OF TAJIK, THERE IS A DISCUSSION OF MORPHOLOGY WHICH COVERS THE PARTS OF SPEECH, TYPES OF COMPOUNDING (NOUNS, ADJECTIVES, VERB STEMS, AND WORDS), DERIVATION, CASE RELATIONS, AND NUMERALS. AN EXTENSIVE ANALYSIS OF THE VERB--VOICES, MOODS, AND TENSES--IS GIVEN, AND A BRIEF DISCUSSION OF OTHER MISCELLANEOUS FORM-CLASSES COMPLETES THE CHAPTER ON MORPHOLOGY. THE SECTION ON SYNTAX DISCUSSES SIMPLE, COMPOUND, AND COMPLEX SENTENCES AND THE MANY TYPES OF CLAUSES PREVALENT IN TAJIK GRAMMAR. THIS 110-PAGE ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF AMERICAN LINGUISTICS," VOLUME 29, NUMBER 4, OCTOBER 1963, AND IS AVAILABLE AS PUBLICATION 28 FOR $3.00 FROM THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLICATIONS OF THE RESEARCH CENTER IN ANTHROPOLOGY, FOLKLORE, AND LINGUISTICS, RAYL HOUSE, INDIANA UNIVERSITY, BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 47401.
