About Book:

Awadhi is an Eastern Hindi dialect comprising masterpieces, as the Ramayana of Tulsi Das, the Padmawat of Muhammad Jaisi. A dialect wherein such renowned works are written is well worth studying in all its details. The present work on the evolution of Awadhi (Eastern Hindi dialect) is divided into two parts bound in a single volume. Part I, relates to the precise description of phonetic notation of Awadhi and is followed by graphic illustrations; and Part II, deals with the accurate and complete description of the ancient and modern stages of Awadhi. It describes the eight parts of speech, the syntactical order of the sentence in Awadhi and is followed by two appendices comprising the specimens of Early and Modern Awadhi Texts.
