Maithili: Some Aspects of Its Phonetics and Phonology presents an account

of some phonetic and phonological aspects of a variety of the 'standard'

dialect of Maithili, a modern Indo-Aryan language spoken by more than 21

million people in the northern and eastern regions of the state of Bihar in

India and in the Tarai districts of Nepal. The author attempted to

establish, describe and classify the speech sounds and sound systems of

Maithili using a relatively more modern phonological framework, especially

using the 'standard theory' to generative phonology as presented by Chomsky

and Halle in The Sound Pattern of English.

It is hoped that this book will prove useful to linguists and phoneticians

in particular and scholars interested in Maithili and related studies in

general.

Review(s)

"Beacuse of Dr. Jha's very good grounding in linguistics, his present book

will be invaluable for people wishing to make a serious study of

Maithili....this book will prove useful to linguists and phoneticians in

particular and scholars in general."
