Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Hindi Morphology
Written By: Shaligram Shukla

Hindi is a modern Indo-European language spoken as either 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 on Hindi morphology complements the author's earlier book, Hindi Phonology (Lincom Studies in Indo-European Linguistics 12). It describes one of the most fundamental units of Hindi structure: the word, its internal structure, and the interrelationship among words. Like the book on phonology, this book on morphology is also comprehensive and detailed. The author has sought simplicity in the presentation, and, for the sake of clarity, facts and their analyses are often repeated with abundant examples. Concepts and technical terms, traditional and current alike are explained for the reader. For the convenience of those familiar with the Devanagari script, the examples are transcribed both in a modified IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) and in the Devanagari. Starting with the introductory chapter, which briefly introduces the language and the principles of morphology, the book continues with chapters focusing on Hindi inflection, derivation, compounding, reduplication, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, particles, postpositions, and idioms.
