"In Phonology the work presents several tables for illustrating the complicated treatment of several Avestan sounds like a, a, s etc., showing a perfect classification of the situation for the variant treatments. Treatment of sounds are also briefly presented in the reverse order (viz. Avestan-Indo-Iranian-Indo-European) to help beginners and researchers. In Morphology the declensions and conjugations have always been presented in the tables, which include cognotes and explanations, thus avoiding the foot-note system."(vide Preface). "The impact and implication of the work of Dr. Misra will be far-flung, not only on account of its up-to-date up-grading, but for its being the first-ever Historico-Comparative Grammar of Avestan in the real sense of the nomenclature as well, peruse for instance the array of reconstructions, Indo-European, Indo-Iranian and Old Iranian, assembled together and furnished in an adequate supply, thus marshalling with a fuller comparative evidence."Printed Pages: 301 with 1 table (folded).
