Title: Marathi
Written By: Rajeshwari V. Pandharipande
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415591485/
Series Title: Descriptive Grammars
Description:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

This is a complete grammatical description of Marathi, which belongs to the
Indo-European family and is spoken in Maharashtra State in India. It has
around 45 million speakers, who comprise about eight per cent of the total
population of India. Marathi is particularly interesting from the point of
view of its structure: it is a blending of linguistic features of the
Indo-European and Dravidian language families. Marathi provides fascinating
data for the study of language typology, structural change, and language
universals.

Marathi is presented in a broad, universally intelligible framework which
makes it accessible to linguists and non-linguists, and native and
non-native speakers alike.
