Description

This book has a twofold purpose: to provide a concise presentation of the essential grammar of modern Hindi which brings beginners to the point where they can read modern prose and to serve as a reference for those consolidating their grasp of the language.

People planning to visit India for business or pleasure will also find the book very useful: colloquial vocabulary and style receive as much detailed attention as the more formal written style. The material is presented in roman transliteration as well as in the Hindi script.

This is a completely revised edition: the exercises have been updated to provide a wider coverage of grammar and ;modern usage, and a new series of listening and reading ex exercises presented in dialogue form has been incorporated. Other additions include a section in the Introduction illustrating the formation of Hindi script characters in handwriting, a detailed grammatical index and an updated list of further readings.
