Title: A Grammar and Dictionary of Indus Kohistani
Subtitle: Volume I: Dictionary
Written By: Claus Peter Zoller
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-3110179474-1&l=E
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Documentation 21.1
Description:

Volume 1 of A Grammar and Dictionary of Indus Kohistani contains around
8.000 lemmata, many of which are supplemented with parallels from adjacent
dialects, from other Dardic, from Nuristani, Indo-Aryan, Iranian, Dravidian
and Munda languages, and from Burushaski. The lemmata have been, wherever
possible, provided with information about their origin, and they are
connected by numerous cross-references. Since Indus Kohistani is a pitch
accent language with complicated rules governing the behaviour of the two
pitch accents in compounding, derivation, and inflexion, the lemmata are
not only marked with their appropriate pitch accents, but the behaviour of
the accents (change of value, shift) is illustrated with a large number of
inflected forms and cross-references. And since Indus Kohistani has a rich
(and frequently irregular) inner and outer conjugation, most verbs are
provided with many finite and participle forms. In addition, the dictionary
contains two indexes (English – Indus Kohistani and Old Indo-Aryan – Indus
Kohistani), and lists with place and clan names, names of the months, etc.
