  PLACE NAMES IN KASHMIR

Co-authored by : B. K. RAINA & S. L. SADHU

2000,  liv+196pp, gloss., bibl., index, ISBN: 81-7276-170-8, Rs. 275 (PB)


In the present study the writers have traced a few hundred place-names in Kashmir. The attempt to process and classify them according to their origin reveals through the sidelights many interesting facts of significance to micro-history, social behaviour, anthropology, etc. More importantly, such names indicate the growth lines of regional languages through semantics, pronunciation and the like. Studies in regional languages would remain incomplete without a working knowledge of the concerned place names.
