A SHORT GRAMMATICAL OUTLINE OF PASHTO.
PAPER, HERBERT H.; SHAFEEV, D.A.
THIS PUBLICATION IS AN ENGLISH EDITION OF A PASHTO GRAMMAR ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN RUSSIAN AND PUBLISHED AS AN APPENDIX TO P.B. ZUDIN'S "RUSSIAN-ENGLISH DICTIONARY" (MOSCOW, 1955). IT WAS INTENDED TO SERVE AS A INTRODUCTION TO THE GRAMMATICAL STRUCTURE OF THE LANGUAGE AND AS AN AID TO USERS OF THE DICTIONARY, RATHER THAN A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE GRAMMATICAL FORMS AND CATEGORIES OF PASHTO. THIS TRANSLATION IS OF VALUE TO LINGUISTS AND IRANISTS AS AN EXAMPLE OF THE RUSSIAN CONTRIBUTION TO IRANIAN LINGUISTICS AS WELL AS AN ALTERNATE DESCRIPTION OF A LANGUAGE WHICH HAS NOT BEEN EXTENSIVELY STUDIED. MAJOR CHAPTERS INCLUDE PHONOLOGY, MORPHOLOGY, AND BASIC INFORMATION ON SYNTAX. APPENDED ARE SHORT SECTIONS ON ARABIC BORROWINGS AND VERB CONJUGATION. THROUGHOUT THIS TRANSLATION THE CYRILLIC TRANSCRIPTION OF THE RUSSIAN ORIGINAL HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A ROMAN TRANSCRIPTION CORRESPONDING WITH THAT USED BY BOTH CHAVARRIA-AGUILAR AND PENZL IN THEIR PASHTO TEXTS. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED AS PART III OF THE INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF AMERICAN LINGUISTICS, VOLUME 30, NUMBER 3, JULY 1964. IT IS AVAILABLE FOR $3.00 AS PUBLICATION 33 FROM THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLICATIONS, RESEARCH CENTER IN ANTHROPOLOGY, FOLKLORE, AND LINGUISTICS, RAYL HOUSE, INDIANA UNIVERSITY, BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 47401.
