This is a reference grammar of the standard spoken variety of Tamil, which differs radically from the literary language. This book, a much expanded version of the author's Grammar of Spoken Tamil (1979) is the first such grammar to contain examples both in Tamil script and in transliteration, and is designed to be accessible to students studying the modern spoken language at all levels as well as to linguists and other specialists. The book has benefited from extensive native-speaker input and the author's own long experience of teaching Tamil to English-speakers.
