Book Description

Marathi is an Indo-aryan language spoken by a fairly large number of people. According to the 1971 Census Report the number of Marathi speakers in Maharashtra is 38616857 and the number of Marathi speakers in other states is 3634350. It borders on two Dravidian languages–Telugu and Kannada, and two Indo-aryan languages–Gujarati and Hindi. It has a number of social and regional dialects like Kosti, Koli, Kudali, Kunbi, Povari, Thakri etc. The Marathi spoken by the educated people in Poona is chosen as a basis to prepare this Outline. This speech form is quite close to the written form of Marathi.

The Aim and Scope of the Outline –The purpose of this Outline is to introduce the sounds of Marathi to the non–Marathi speakers. An attempt is made, as for as possible, to describe Marathi sounds in simple and non- technical terms. The Outline is divided into four sections:
