An Advanced Marathi Reader. Parts One and Two.
Berntsen, Maxine; Nimbkar, Jai
This advanced reader, containing ten stories, is designed for adult students of Marathi with an intermediate knowledge of the language. It is intended to increase the students' reading skills and introduce them to some main themes in Maharashtrian life and literature. The selections deal primarily with women and marriage, and religion. It is felt that the selections will help the student gain insight into traditional values and processes of change going on in Maharashtra. A brief introduction in English precedes some of the stories. The second part of the reader consists of a list of the vocabulary found in the stories. The meanings given are those appropriate to the context of the stories, and are not necessarily the most common meanings of a word. Each noun is followed by its plural form if it is relevant, and adjectives are given in the neuter singular form. (CLK)
