Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mewati is an Indo-Aryan language, classified as an unclassified language in the Central Indo-Aryan languages, and is spoken by about five million speakers in Alwar, Bharatpur and Dholpur districts of Rajasthan, and Mewat districts of Haryana states of India, as well as parts of southern Pakistan and in Punjab. Extensive linguistic research work has not been carried out on this language so far, although it contributed profoundly to Rajasthani literature in medieval periods. There are 9 vowels, 31 consonants, and 2 diphthongs. Suprasegmentals are not so prominent as they are in the other dialects of Rajasthani. There are two numbers singular and plural, two genders masculine and feminine; and three cases direct, oblique, and vocative. The nouns decline according to their final segments. Case marking is postpositional. Pronouns are traditional in nature and are inflected for number and case. Gender is not distinguished in pronouns. Two types of adjectives are there. There are three tenses past, present, and future. Participles function as adjectives.show more
