Summary Kashmiri, spoken in Kashmir, the northernmost state of India, challenges every field of linguistics, be it synchronic, diachronic, areal, comparative, typological, modern or generative. Unlike other members of the Indo-Aryan language family, to which it is acclaimed to belong, its syntax, similar to Germanic and other verb second languages, has raised many significant issues within current generative theories proposed by Chomsky and other prominent linguists. The book contains extensive descriptions of Kashmiri syntax, morphology, agreement, and pronominal clitics. It is invaluable as a reference and source book. Its originality lies in the fact that it presents a wealth of information on a relatively unknown verb second language. It will help to clarify certain key issues in current theories.
