The thesis is an attempt to give a descriptive account of the grammar of the old Kanarese inscriptions from the linguistic material available in the inscriptions of the sixth and seventh centuries A.D. It consists of three parts: Part I: The Grammar: Consisting of short chapters on the history of certain consonants and consonant groups, substantives, adjectives, pronouns, numerals, verbs, adverbs and conjunctions An attempt is made to explain the forms, wherever possible, in the light of those in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu and Tulu; and developments of some of the old Kanarese forms into the modern Kanarese are noted. The last Chapter is devoted to remarks on the word-order. Part II: The Inscriptions: Text of the Inscriptions studied. Part III: The Index: Index of all words in the Inscriptions studied, with etymological notes.
