Language of Indrajit of Orcha by R.S. McGregor
Book DescriptionFor centuries, until the consolidation of modern standard Hindi after 1900, the Hindi dialect known as Braj Bhasa enjoyed great prestige as the vehicle of the Krsna cult literature of northern India, as well as for the brilliance of its secular literature. Most of this material was in verse, although since the beginning of the last century we have had knowledge of the existence of texts in Sanskritized Braj Bhasa prose, chiefly sectarian chronicles and commentaries, from a relatively early date. In this, the earliest thorough analysis of a Braj Bhasa text, Dr McGregor presents one of the oldest known Braj Bhasa prose texts: a Braj commentary on the Sanskrit Nitisataka of Bhartrhari, originally composed about 1600. His detailed examination of the morphology, phonology and syntax of its language casts light on the types of language that underlie the Braj Bhasa used in verse literature, and provide a comparative basis for further studies of the prose produced in Braj and in other Hindi dialects before the nineteenth century.
