A START IN PANJABI. HARTFORD STUDIES IN LINGUISTICS, NUMBER 11.
GILL, HARJEET SINGH; GLEASON, HENRY A., JR.
DESIGNED TO COMPRISE A SHORT COURSE IN STANDARD PANJABI FOR AMERICANS TRAVELING TO INDIA OR PAKISTAN, THIS COURSE PREPARES THE STUDENT "FOR SOME EFFECTIVE, IF LIMITED, USE OF THE LANGUAGE VERY SOON AFTER HIS ARRIVAL." IT IS ASSUMED THAT THE CLASSROOM INSTRUCTOR WILL BE A NATIVE SPEAKER OF THE LANGUAGE AND THAT HIS TIME WILL BE LARGELY DEVOTED TO DIRECT WORK ON THE SPOKEN LANGUAGE. THE WIDELY-ACCEPTED MAJHI DIALECT IS TAUGHT AND THE SETTINGS OF THE DIALOGS ARE GENERALLY COMMON TO BOTH INDIA AND PAKISTAN. THROUGHOUT THE TEXT REFERENCES ARE MADE TO CULTURAL PATTERNS AND CORRECT SOCIAL USAGES SO THAT THE STUDENT LEARNS THE LANGUAGE IN THE CONTEXT IN WHICH IT WILL BE ACTUALLY USED. THE FIRST 11 LESSONS ARE DEVOTED TO INTENSIVE PRONUNCIATION AND PATTERN PRACTICES. IN THE FOLLOWING NINE LESSONS GRAMMATICAL PATTERNS ARE GRADUALLY PRESENTED USING, AS FAR AS POSSIBLE, NONTECHNICAL LINGUISTIC TERMINOLOGY. A TYPICAL ADVANCED LESSON CONTAINS A DIALOG, CULTURAL NOTES, THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOR THE DIALOG, GRAMMAR NOTES, PATTERN PRACTICES, AND AN ENGLISH TO PANJABI TRANSLATION EXERCISE. THE LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS FOLLOWED IS THAT OF THE AUTHORS'"A REFERENCE GRAMMAR OF PANJABI." ALL PANJABI MATERIAL IS WRITTEN IN TRANSCRIPTION. APPENDED TO THE LANGUAGE LESSONS IS A SECTION ENCOURAGING THE STUDENT TO PRACTICE WHAT HE HAS LEARNED AND SUGGESTING TECHNIQUES FOR CONTINUING INDEPENDENT LANGUAGE STUDY. (JD)
