Description

This is a complete grammatical description of Marathi, which belongs to the Indo-European family and is spoken in Maharashtra State in India. It has around 45 million speakers, who comprise about eight per cent of the total population of India. Marathi is particularly interesting from the point of view of its structure: it is a blending of linguistic features of the Indo-European and Dravidian language families. Marathi provides fascinating data for the study of language typology, structural change, and language universals.

Marathi is presented in a broad, universally intelligible framework which makes it accessible to linguists and non-linguists, and native and non-native speakers alike.
