Hindi Structures: Intermediate Level. Michigan Papers on South and Southeast Asia, No. 16.
Hook, Peter Edwin
This book provides instruction and drill in the grammatical structures of Hindi-Urdu; it does not include dialogues or conversational stimuli, readings, or cultural notes. The lessons are arranged into sections that can be covered in 50 minutes of class time; structures and vocabulary are reused at regular intervals, and more difficult topics are introduced later on. The general approach is cognitive in an attempt to make the use of the material depend as little as possible on the mediation of the teacher. There are 26 lessons, including regular review lessons, and a Hindi-English and English-Hindi glossary. The glossary includes word frequency indications and references to the section of the text in which the words occur. The book is illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings of persons, objects, and scenes related to Hindi culture. (AMH)
