THE Introductory Punjabi is intended primarily for those whose mother tongue is not Punjabi but are native speakers of any other Indian language. Hence, some familiarity with the Punjabi cultural items is pre-supposed. The non-Indian may, however, also be able to use this text with profit since the lessons are properly graded. This introduction to different grammatical characteristics of the Punjabi language is gradual and each pattern is repeated over and over again. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to present the sound structure of our language in the same manner. But it should be sufficient to point out that because of the development of what are technically called, the tones, the pronunciation of Punjabi differs radically from Hindi or other Indian languages. The best way to acquire fluency is to imitate a native Punjabi speaker and not to depend too much on the spellings.
