Abstract

In this thesis an attempt is made at a formal classification of Urdu words. Words are first classified according to the full range of the different patterns of formal variation, then further sub-classified on the basis of concordial and colligational criteria. Native words have been treated separately from the borrowed words in each class only insofar as they show a different range of the patterns of formal variation. In the Introduction, it has been stated briefly what type of language is used, and the main features of the type of analysis performed. Chapter One forms an Introduction. Chapter Two deals with Nominal forms, both native and borrowed. Chapter Three deals with adjectival forms including borrowed ones. Chapter Pour deals with verbal forms of native origin. Chapter Five deals with pronominal forms Chapter Six deals with concord patterns which have been referred to in different Chapters. Indeclinable forms are also briefly mentioned in the Chapters where necessary.
