By G. C JONES on March 3, 2006
Format: Unknown Binding
This is not really a `grammar of Pashto.' It is however a descriptive study of the dialect of Kandahar, and does review the grammar from an advanced point of view (pointing out trends rather than giving examples). It is useful for someone who already has some knowledge of pashto (either Kandahar or other dialect), for the linguist or dedicated learner, or for someone with no other resource available. The Kandahar dialect is the most `elegant' and some say the purest (closest to original) dialect and maintains a good connection to the extra pashto letters. Dr. Penzl relies on his own observation and also supplies some rarely helpful explicit input from three natives of Kandahar. Unfortunately the explanations are a little jargon-wordy and overcomplicated whereas in principle the ideas are very simple. Nevertheless, this is a useful and well-put together book.
