Intermediate Nepali Reader. Volume II.
Verma, M. K.; Sharma, T. N.
A set of twelve reading lessons is presented as part of a comprehensive intermediate Nepali course. The lessons are graded in terms of language complexity and selected in terms of style. Highly sophisticated and journalistic compositions are included as well as the colloquial and folk styles of the common people. Each reading passage is accompanied by a glossary with grammatical and cultural explanations of specialized vocabulary and idioms. Various subject matters are exemplified with the objective of giving the student a multidimensional orientation to the Nepali people, their language, and their culture. Although intended as a companion volume to "Intermediate Nepali Structures," the reader can also serve as an aid in continuing self-instruction for those who have some background in Nepali. A comprehensive dictionary of the vocabulary used in the passages is appended, arranged according to the Devanagari alphabetical order. (Author/JB)
