Linguistic Papers on Madia language

GRAMMAR (व्याकरण)


The description presented here is not intended to be a comprehensive descriptive grammar of Hill Madia.  Rather it is a sketch of grammatical structures in Madia that perform certain universal communicative functions.  These structures include predicate nominals, grammatical relations, tense, aspect and mode, valence-changing devices and pragmatically marked structures.  This typological-functional approach is thus different from that followed in the two earlier works mentioned above.

This paper contains an analysis of the sound system of the Madia Gond language: consonant and vowel phonemes, their distribution and the phonological rules that govern sound changes. Generative phonology is the theoretical basis.
