About the Author

Rama Agnihotri is at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Delhi-he specialises in applied linguistics, language teaching and ELT.


The most appealing aspect of Agnihotri's grammar is its clear conception of its own objectives and functions. For speakers of Hindi, it is an exposition of the systemacity and rule-governed nature of their language; for learners of Hindi, it is an instrument to further the learning of the language. In its jargon-free description of the patterns of Hindi grammar, the volume doubles up as an introduction to modern grammatical analysis for anyone trying their hand at grammar construction. -Reveiwed b Ayesha Kidwai, Jawaharlal Nehru University Agnihotri's Hindi: An Essential Grammar will, from now on, count as essential reading for anyone interested in the language, irrespective of age or specialisation. -Reveiwed by Ayesha Kidwai, Jawaharlal Nehru University
