Basic Course in Uzbek. Indiana University Publications: Uralic and Altaic Series, Volume 59.
This work is a revised edition of the author's "Spoken Uzbek," originally written for class use at Indiana University in 1952-53. Comprised of 25 lesson units and five review units, the format follows the general outline of the earlier ACLS (American Council of Learned Societies) "Spoken Language" courses: basic sentences are presented in build-up sequence in dialog form, in English and a phonemic transcription of Uzbek; the new structures presented in the basic sentences are analyzed and practiced; and conversation and discussion exercises are provided. The first five units also include pronunciation exercises based on a contrastive analysis of Uzbek and English. Uzbek-English and English-Uzbek vocabularies, a grammatical and phonological index, and a bibliography are appended. For related materials in Uzbek, see ED 014 068, "Uzbek Structural Grammar," and ED 015 465, "Uzbek Newspaper Reader." (AMM)
