Series Title: Descriptive Grammars
Description:

Now available in paperback.

Punjabi is the language of the Punjab - the land of five rivers - of
northern India and Pakistan. Primarily written in three distinct scripts, a
unique feature of the language is that, along with Lahanda and the Western
Pahari dialects, it is the only modern Indo-European language spoken in
South-East Asia which is tonal in nature. It is recognised as one of the
several national languages of India and Pakistan, and approximately
forty-five million people speak Punjabi as either a first or second language.

This Descriptive Grammar accounts for the linguistic and sociolinguistic
properties of Punjabi and Lahanda/Multani. It explores the standard
language, giving a comprehensive account of syntax, morphology and
phonology. With a descriptive, typological and cognitive examination of the
language, this is a comprehensive and authoritative description of modern
Punjabi . This volume will be invaluable to students and researchers of
linguistic theory and practice.
