A study of the Pushtu language, or Pashto language, spoken by the Pashtans, an Eastern Iranian language in the Indo-European family. It is known in Persian literature as Afghani and in Hindustani literature as Pathani. The book is in three sections: grammar, prose composition and colloquial sentences.

Condition

A good copy but it is lacking the two fold out charts to the rear and there are many inoffensive pencil annotations to the margins. The book remains very readable.
