 Sanford B. Steever, ed,, THE DRAVIDIAN LANGUAGES
 This authoritative reference provides unique descriptions of 11 
 Dravidian languages, covering their historical development with 
 discussions of their specialized linguistic structures and features. 
 Each chapter combines modern linguistic theory with traditional 
 historical linguistics and a uniform chapter structure allows for easy 
 comparison between the individual languages. Two further chapters 
 provide general information about the language family--the 
 introduction covers the history, cultural implications and linguistic 
 background, and a separate article on Dravidian writing systems. 
 Written by a team of experts, each language chapter offers a detailed 
 analysis of phonology, morpology, syntax and lexicon.
