In Chapter One (Introduction) the language under investigation is discussed, who the people are who spoke it, and the places where they live. In Chapter Two the structure of words is examined, and suggestions are made for the placing of the accent in polysyllabic words. Chapter Three considers the structure of Phrases, and Chapter Four the structure of Sentences. In Chapter Five Sentence Accent is considered. Chapter Six is concerned with the Intonation Patterns of Hindi, and seeks to show a close relationship between syntactic pieces (Phrases) and Intonational Sub-contours. Appendix I lists words and sentences which were recorded by my informants; Appendix II consists of two folk-tales, recorded by my informants; Appendix III has some conversations which were recorded. Finally, Appendix IV presents experimental results when some words and sentences were analysed in the laboratory. This thesis is all my own work; the Chapters which, I suggest, offer the most notable contribution to study in the field are Chapter Two on Word-structure and Word-accentuation, and Chapter Six on Intonation Patterns. The thesis is accompanied by recordings on cassette of material listed in Appendices I, II and III.
