Tajiki reference grammar for beginners.


Tajiki reference grammar for beginners.

Khojayori, Nasrullo and Mikael Thompson.

Georgetown U. Press


168 pages




The reference supports a two-volume elementary textbook on Tajiki, also spelled Tadzhiki, a form of Persian spoken in Central Asia. Like the texts, it can be used for a course or for self-study. Khojayori is from Tajikistan and has taught Tajiki and Persian; Thompson teaches Mongolian and inner Asian writing systems. Both are now at Indiana University, home of the Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CelCAR), which produced the series. The grammar follows the conventional form, explaining orthography and phonology, nominals and prepositions, verbs, adverbs and particles, and compound and complex sentences. A glossary and detailed index are provided.
