Abstract:

The Munda Verb is a unique book on the typology of the verb in the Munda
language family, and the first of its kind on any language family of the
Indian subcontinent. The author painstakingly works out nearly all the
details of the morphology of the verb in each modern Munda language and
offers a description of the typology of the Munda verbal systems both
individually and collectively.

The author uses a large amount of data from modern Munda languages, as well
as an extensive cross-linguistic corpus offering comparisons from
genetically unrelated languages such as Fox, Amele, Kinyarwanda, Luyia,
Takelma, Tonkawa, Burushaski, or Tangut where relevant. Points of note
include the unusual incorporation system of South Munda Sora and the
elaborate and complex system of verb agreement attested in the Kherwarian
Munda languages. Further, the author discusses models for a Proto-Munda
verbal system and problems in its reconstruction at various points throughout.

Of interest to:

Research Libraries; Specialists in South Asian languages, Austroasiatic,
and Munda Languages; Researchers in Historical Linguistics, Linguistic
Typology, Verbal Categories, Morphosyntax, and Syntax.
