Description - Punjabi by Tej K. Bhatia
This is a complete grammatical description of Panjabi, an Indo-European language spoken in India and Pakistan, as well as in other countries outside Asia (particularly in the United Kingdom and Canada) by approximately 45 million people, either as a first or a second language. It is recognized as one of the 15 official languages of India. Primarily written in three distinct scripts (Gurumukhi, Perso-Arabic, and Devanagari), a unique feature of the language is that it is tonal in nature. Along with Lahanda and the Western Pahari (Himalayan) dialects, Panjabi is the only modern Indo-European language which has developed tonal contrast. Along with Indian and Pakistan varieties of Panjabi, the book also attempts to account for the linguistic and sociolinguistic properties of British and Canadian varieties.
