Description

A Start in Punjabi is based on detailed analyses of sound patterns and syntactic structures of Punjabi and American English. It may be used alongwith its companion volume, a reference grammar of Punjabi, where the authors have dwelt upon colloquial as well as cultivated expressions collated from contemporary literature.

There is also a chapter on the Gurumukhi writing system. This book was first circulated in the United States in mimeograph form in Hartford Studies in Linguistics, 1963.
