Book Information

   

Title: The Indo-Aryan Languages
Written By: Colin P. Masica
URL: http://books.cambridge.org/0521299446.htm
Description:

In his ambitious survey of the Indo-Aryan languages, Colin Masica
has provided a fundamental introduction which will interest not only
general and theoretical linguists but also students of one or more
of these languages who want to acquaint themselves with the
broader linguistic context. Generally synchronic in approach,
concentrating on the phonology, morphology and syntax of the
modern representatives of the group, the volume also covers
their historical development, areal context, writing systems
and aspects of sociolinguistics. The survey is organised not on a
language-by-language basis but by topic, so that salient theoretical
issues may be discussed in a comparative context.
