Abstract:

Marathi, an Indo-Aryan language, is the official language of Maharashtra,
including Mumbai. Father Thomas Stephens, the first English traveler to
Goa, a pioneer linguist, wrote Christa Puran in Marathi (1616) and
Arte da Lingoa Canarim in Portuguese, printed in (1640). The latter
is a grammar of Konkani, a language closely related to Marathi. It is the
first grammar of its kind marking a new grammatical tradition for modern
Indo-Aryan languages. The present volume contains an extensive account of
Marathi phonology, morphology, word formation and syntax. It succinctly
describes the accentual system, special compound verb forms, unique
pronominal anaphors, complex agreement due to split ergative system, and
special pronominal marking. The book also contains a case study of a
child's acquisition of Marathi and an essay on Women's Language, the two
topics that are increasingly becoming relevant to the grammar.
