This basic textbook of Kashmiri, the language of Srinagar, India, was designed for use in the classroom or in a self-instructional course and consists of two volumes. Volume 1 is divided into the following sections: (1) a brief sociolinguistic profile of Kashmiri, (2) phonology, (3) conversations (lessons 1-31), (4) advanced grammar, (5) review exercises, (6) narrative texts (lessons 32-45), and (7) examples of Kashmiri poetry (lessons 46-50). In each of the first 31 lessons, the lexical meaning of all new words is given before they occur in a Kashmiri sentence, for which the English translation is given. At the end of every lesson, there is a section of detailed notes on culture, grammar, and vocabulary, together with practice materials. In lessons 32-50, no explanatory notes are provided, but the English equivalents of important lexical items are given. Volume 2 includes a Kashmiri-English/English-Kashmiri glossary, a partial list of English borrowings in Kashmiri, a glossary of selected terms used in the text, and suggestions for further reading.
