In spite of its critical position as the link between the classical Indian literatures of Sanskrit and Prakrit, and the early modern vernacular literatures of North India (Braj Bhasha, Gujarati, Bengali, Hindi, etc.) Apabhramsha language and literature remains probably one of the most understudied fields of Indology and South Asian Studies. The Paumacariu of the Apabhramsha poet Svayambhudeva, narrating the Jain version of the story of Ramayana, is the earliest masterpiece of Apabhramsha epic literature, and possibly the oldest specimen of Apabhramsha literature available to us.
   Half a century after legendary Harivallabh Bhayani published the excellent critical edition, Dr. Eva De Clercq engaged in a critical study of this text, including an analysis of its grammar.
   The book The Apabhramsha of Svayambhudeva's Paumacariu gives a full systematic descriptive overview of its phonological and morphological characteristics, disclosing new materials for scholars of historical and comparative linguistics. To those who wish to read and research this and other Apabhramsha texts themselves, it will provide a valued tool. [Verlagsinformation]
