Foreword

The National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language (NCPUL), an autonomous organisation under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Department of Secondary and Higher Education, Government of India, has been set up to promote, develop and propagate Urdu Language. To meet the above objectives the Council has decided to launch a Certificate Course of Urdu on distance mode. The learning materials have been specially designed by a team of experts drawn from different Universities and Institutions as well as the in-house experts.

I express my deep thanks to Dr. M.JWarsi who teaches at University of Michigan, U.S.A for preparing this "Exercise Book and Grammatical Notes" to accompany URDU: Readings in Literary Urdu Prose by Prof. Gopi Chand Narang keeping in view the lexical, grammatical and stylistic difficulties of those learners who have just entered the field of Urdu and have started to read the Urdu language m its beautiful script. Efforts have been made to present the book in as simple a form as possible.

I hope that the book will meet the requirements of the target group and the students will find it useful.

 

Preface

This Exercise Book is prepared to accompany URDU: Readings in Literary Urdu Prose by Professor Gopi Chand Narang. The text comprises graded selections from literary Urdu prose and excerpts from speeches keeping in view the lexical and stylistic difficulties. It provides learners with an elementary knowledge of Urdu a smooth transition to advanced lelvel introducing features of the cultural tradition.

This book explains the major types of grammatical constructions and provides exercises for practice. A brief description of grammatical terms is given at the beginning of each Unit so that the learners are acquainted with grammatical rules while attempting exercises. It is obvious that this is not a comprehensive grammar of Urdu. I have mainly presented brief notes on grammatical terms used in the text. I do not claim to have covered every grammatical feature of Urdu, but I hope It would help the learner to get a broad understanding of the Urdu language.

The book is aimed primarily for learners who feel a need for explicit discussion of basic grammatical features and profit from attempting general exercises. I hope the book will serve the purpose for which it is written.
