A start in punjabi is based on detailed analyses of Sound patterns and syntactic structures of Punjabi and American English. It may be used along with its companion volume, a reference grammar of punjabi, where the authors have dwelt upon colloquial as well as cultivated expressions collated from contemporary literature. There is also a chapter on the Gurumukhi writing system. This book was first circulated in the United States in mimeograph form in Hartford Studies in Linguistics, 1963.
