Hindi Phonology
Shaligram Shukla, Georgetown University

Hindi is the world's third most commonly used language after Chinese
and English. It is a modern Indo-European language spoken as a first
or second language by almost a half billion people in India, as well
as other parts of Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, and Oceania.
This book's primary aim is to describe Hindi sounds and their pattern.
Little previous knowledge of phonology is assumed. The book is
comprehensive and detailed. Traditional and current concepts and
technical terms are explained. The various chapters discusse the
historical and sociological background of Hindi, the nature of Hindi
lexicon both native and borrowed, the conventions of the Devanagari
symbols (since in the text examples are also transcribed in the
Devanagari), the articulation of Hindi sounds and their
characterization in terms of distinctive features, the concept of
phonemes, the significant allophones of Hindi, the natural classes of
Hindi sounds, Hindi syllables and their structure, and Hindi stress.
 
The author, a native speaker of Hindi, is professor of linguistics at
Georgetown University. His has published extensively in the areas of
anthropology, linguistics, and literature.
