A Reader of Classical Urdu Poetry, Vol. Three.
Barker, Muhammad Abd-Al-Rahman; And Others
This is the third of three volumes intended to be used as pedagogical materials in advanced Urdu courses at Western colleges and universities. An optional set of tape recordings and an optional set of 35mm slides accompany the three-volume work. Volume III first includes an appendix describing the phonemic alphabet (with rough correspondences to English sounds), the system of grammatical form class abbreviations used throughout this series, and the details of the organization of the comprehensive vocabulary. The vocabulary list comprises the bulk of this volume. Each occurrence of each lexical item in the selections has been counted, and the results of this frequency count are included in the vocabulary entries. A section of photographs of Urdu manuscript pages is presented at the end of the volume. Each contains some of the verses given in the first volume; they are intended to aid the student in learning to read several varieties of the Urdu script. A complete manuscript copy of a poem by Sa'adat Yar Khan Rangin ends this section. (Author/RM)
