First Bengali Grammar: A Comparative Analysis
First Bengali Grammar: A Comparative Analysis
Description
About the Book:

First Bengali Grammar is an outstanding contribution to the field of Bengali grammatical studies. This is the first of its kind and unique of its nature. This book describes historically different facets of Bengali grammar from its historical point of view. Most interesting point of this book is that it has discussed every aspect of Bengali grammar historically and has faithfully represented the original texts consulted by Dr. Bandyopadhyay. To study this book means that intellectually scholars are going to be acquainted with the growth and development of the contents of Bengali grammar. The rarest quality of this book is the amalgamation of the opinions of different European Bengali grammarians like Halhed, Carey, Yates. Most of their books are rare, not even always available in all the libraries of Calcutta. Dr Bandyopadhyay has painstakingly laboured much to accumulate all the facts in one place and systematised them in such a way that it has become almost a new research work in the domain of Bengali grammatical study.

About the Author:

Dr Anita Bandyopadhyay is one of the modern linguists in the present generation. She studied Linguistics (Honours) in the Govt. Sanskrit College, Calcutta, and stood second in the first class from the University of Calcutta. Subsequently she did her M.A. in Linguistics from the University of Calcutta and stood second in the first class. She also got Ph.D. from the University of Calcutta in 1995, her subject being the 'Traces of Colloquilism from the early 19th Century Bengali literature. She has been doing her research work for the last 7/8 years. She has already a few articles and the present book to her credit, besides her monumental thesis not yet published. She also did her B.Ed from the University of Calcutta. The present book will tell her insight into the science of linguistics.
