Sjoberg, Andree F.
This report presents a general study of the structure of Dravidian languages, nothing predominant and significant patterns and similarities among the languages in the areas of phonology, morphology, and syntax. There is also a discussion of the main differences of various subgroups or particular languages from the typical patterns. Background information on some of the languages is provided along with mention of where they are spoken and the number of speakers. The work is designed primarily as a teaching aid in courses and as background material for the study of any Dravidian language. References are provided; tables illustrate some of the grammatical features. (VM)
