Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses the linguistic differences between the Hindi and the Urdu editions of the bilingual corpus and their influence on the text. After analysing the changes, the author classified them into four categories: morpho-syntactic, syntactic, lexical, and orthographical /phonological changes, each comprising a number of subcategories. In the category of morpho-syntax, there are six subcategories: (1) the iẕāfat-construction; (ii) singular versus plural; (iii) the pronouns 'ko' and ''; (iv) the adjective 'jaisā'; (v) verbal changes: change of tense, and (vi) verbal changes: change of auxiliary verb. The syntactic category has been subdivided into seven subcategories: (i) SOV; (ii) (Lack of) punctuation and its consequences; (iii) Different kinds of pronouns; (iv) Negators, (v) The emphatic and enclitic particle ''; (vi) The adverb 'bhī', and (vii) Numerals.

Keywords: bilingual corpus; Hindi; lexical changes; linguistic differences; morpho-syntactic changes; orthographical /phonological changes; syntactic changes; Urdu
