An Academic Reference Grammar of Modern Literary Uzbek is a comprehensive 
descriptive academic reference grammar of Modern Uzbek, the official 
language of the Republic of Uzbekistan. It is comprehensive in that it 
accounts for every grammatical phenomenon identifiable in a broad scale 
of primary sources. Its method is descriptive in the traditional sense: 
it presents, explains and illustrates in sufficient context the elements
of all segment of the Uzbek grammar: phonology, morphology, syntax,
and lexicon. With these qualities the work goes beyond the limits of
normative, or prescriptive grammars of the Soviet period and therefore
is exempt of formulating or enforcing norms, in any cultural political
agenda. The grammar of Uzbek is presented as it appears in a vast
array of source materials from the works of Abdulla Qodiri to Odil
Yaqubov and other representative modern writers of the Uzbeks. The
spoken language and the language of the media were also considered
from materials collected in field trips, or contributed by native
speakers and consultants. The best yields of Uzbek and Russian
scholarship especially from the Soviet period were among the valuable
secondary sources and carefully studied. An important feature of the
work is that illustrations for structure or content are not made?up
sentences or phrases but quotes taken directly from prestigious
primary sources with sufficient context.
