Transition of Dravidian into Aryan227

10. TRANSITION OF DRAVIDIAN INTO ARYAN
Dravidian Element in the Vernacular languages of
Northern India

     “The principal particulars in which the grammar of the North-Indian idioms accords with that of the Dravidian languages are as follows:

1) the inflexion of nouns by means of separate post-fixed particles added to the oblique form of the noun;
   
(2) the inflexion of the plural by annexing to the unvarying sign of plurality the same suffixes of case as those by which the singular is inflected;
   
(3) the use in several of the northern idioms of two pronouns of the first person plural, the one including, the other excluding, the party addressed;
   
(4) the use of post-positions, instead of pre-positions;
   
(5) the formation of verbal tenses by means of participles;
   
(6) the situation of the relative sentence before the indicative;
   
(7) the situation of the governing word after the word governed.1
