The Oriya Language Textbook Series, Volume One: Introduction to Oriya.
Matson, Dan M.
Oriya, a language spoken by approximately 14 million Indians who live along the coast of the Bay of Bengal, is the subject of this introductory language text. The basic, grammatical framework of Oriya is developed in this volume. Presentation of the orthographic system is achieved through the Romanization of the Oriya alphabet. Short dialogues with translated English versions serve as the basis of each chapter's work. Translation exercises are included in each of the 13 lessons. A transition from the Romanized transcription to Oriyan calligraphy is gradually developed for the beginning student.
