dc.abstract.en From the very beginning of its existence hindi has been subjected to foreign influences. Close contact with Persian brought to India by Muslim invaders, lasting for several centuries, has borne fruit in the form of enormous quantity of borrowings of different types. It has also reached the most advanced stage in the whole process of enriching one language by the elements of the other - the phenomenon of hybridisation, creating words of mixed Perso-Hindi etymology, has appeared. Though hybrid words exist probably in every language, in Hindi their role is particular. They demonstrate its extraordinary ability for syncretising new, alien components without much harm to itself. The main aim of this book os to show the scale of hybrid Perso-Arabic word-formation in Hindi and to discuss the factors that have been influencing this hybridisation. The features and linguistic processes crucial to it have also been pointed out. pl
