Marathi Structural Patterns. Book One.
Berntsen, Maxine; Nimbkar, Jai
A basic introductory grammatical text of Marathi is presented. The book is divided into two parts. Part One deals with a few basic sentence constructions, and with subject pronouns, the etiquette of pronoun reference, possessives, noun plurals, adjective-noun agreement, and adverbs of place and time. Part Two is almost entirely devoted to verbal constructions. The format of the material is based on the premise that learning a language requires learning the basic patterns of sentences, along with the operations by which they are changed and combined. Accordingly, in this text, forms are introduced as whole units to be memorized; later they are analyzed and explained. Each lesson contains the basic sentences, vocabulary for the lesson, explanations, and exercises. (AMH)
