A Linguistic Survey of Katta Varadarajuís Dwipada Ramayanam
A Ph.D. Dissertation in Telugu

Pammi Pavan Kumar, M.A. (Telugu), M.A. (Linguistics), M. Phil., Ph.D. (Telugu)


This dissertation presents a linguistic analysis of a renowned Telugu version of Ramayana. As the document is a large document, the dissertation is divided into a number of parts. By clicking on the parts given below, you will be able to navigate back and forth to read and download the entire document.

Ramayana has been the bedrock of devotion, ritual and morals in Indian society for ages. In India Ramayana is read in both in its original Sanskrit version and in other Indian languages versions. Only the best poets in every major Indian language has tried to re-compose the epic with local idiom and embellishments.

The Telugu Ramanayana version which is analyzed in this dissertation from a linguistic point of view is a superb poetic creation even as it employes elegant and powerful symbols, imagery, characterization with a great mastery of the Telugu language.

The linguistic description offered here, it is hoped, will lead to further exploration of the intricacies of language use employed in this epic and to investigate how the epic has influenced the growth and development of Telugu languages throughout the centuries.
