The twelve chapters of the grammar describe the phonology, the lexical categories and basic sentences. Special chapters are devoted to numerals and measurements, interrogatives, adjuncts and adverbs, and interpropositional relations. There are 40 tables of data and three appendices in addition to natural sentences spread throughout the chapters to illustrate the analysis and description of the language. One of the appendices contains two complete, interlinearized texts with explanatory introductions. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # 9717800278SIL082312
