- Conjunct Verbs in Hindi Download PDFHindi is extremely rich in complex verbs which are formed by the combinations of noun/adjective and a verb. They are also called conjunct verbs. These combinations are very systematic and intertwined. The paper intends to analyze the process leading to such orderliness. Conjunct verbs are of two types: transitive and intransitive. The transitive verbs are obtained by combining nouns/adjectives with verbs such as karn? ‘to do’, len? ‘to take’ den? ‘to give’ j?tn? ‘to win’ etc. The intransitive verbs are formed with the help of verbs such as hon? ‘to be/become’, lagn? ‘to feel’, ?n? ‘to come’ etc. The paper examines semantic patterns/ontological features of several such combinations to arrive at plausible conclusion about the productivity of conjunct verbs and their collocational restrictions.
- Book Predicates and their Arguments This book offers a comparative study and assignment of theta roles in Urdu-Hindi and English from the point of view of Chomsky (1981, 1995). It highlights the similarity and difference between the languages with a view to the application of theta roles in the challenging areas of Natural Language Processing such as Semantic Analysis, Semantic Role Labelling, Word-Sense Disambiguation, Anaphora Detection and Sentiment Analysis. This comprehensive book may also be useful in language teaching in so far as the well-formed sentences of English are concerned.
