Some British scholars, during the British colonial rule in Punjabi, have rendered a yeoman's service to the Punjab's native language by writing scholarly books on it in English they have familiarized Punjabi to the British and Western people of Europe. The present volume is one such prominent work in this respect. The author has presented a systematic description of the geographical area over which Punjabi was spoken and read, finest exposition of its script, grammar pronunciation, vocabulary dialects important religious texts, names of English translators and translations, and dictionaries. The author's understanding of Punjabi's linguistic nuances is indeed remarkable and exhaustive. The tables showing the number of Punjabi speaking people, grammatical parts of speech, show the scholarly skill of the author. It is a valuable guide and almost a text book for the new learners of Punjabi.
