After acknowledgments and a general index, the thesis opens with an introductory chapter which gives a brief outline of the theory and model of grammatical description upon which this study is based, and reviews the previous work on Hindi verbal syntax. This is followed by the two main chapters of the work. In chapter 2 Hindi sentence structure and the sub-classes of verb which are relevant for the for the fornulatioa of the Constituent Structure rules are discussed, before the rules thenselves are set out. Chapter 5 first gives some of the singuiary transformations, the nominalization, adjectivalization and adverbialization rules follow, and the chapter ends with the singulary transformational rules. The Appendix following these three chapters comprises a lexicon which lives a list of Hindi verbs with their appropriate syntactic, selectional and semantic features, and lists of the other lexical categories with only their selectional features. The thesis ends with a bibliography of works on general linguistic theory and the model of Transformational - Generative Crammar on the one hand, and on Hindi language on the other.
