Bibliographic Details

Title: Papers on Six Languages of Papua New Guinea

Publisher: Pacific Linguistics

Publication Date: 2010

Binding: Soft cover

Book Condition: Fine


156 p., bibliography. This book contains six articles written about grammatical and discourse features of New Guinea languages. The articles are 'Yongkom discourse: ergativity and topic' by Steve Christensen, 'Participant reference in Namia' by Becky Feldpausch, 'Elements of sentence construction and cohesion in Awad Bing' by Carolyn Finamor, 'Tense and mood pairs in Umbu-Ungu' by June Head, 'Can verbs be cohesive? The multiple roles of wiing ‘do’ in Mangga Buang discourse' by Joan Hooley, and 'Ergative in Numanggang' by David Hynum. Two of these languages, Awad Bing and Mangga Buang, are Austronesian. Three belong to the Trans New Guinea family: Yongkom belongs to the Ok language group, Umbu-Ungu to the Chimbu-Wahgi (East Central Highlands) group and Numanggang to the Erap subgroup of the Finisterre-Huon group. Namia belongs to the Yellow River subgroup of the Middle Sepik family. The authors have all worked with the Summer Institute of Linguistics in Papua New Guinea, each living for significant periods in the community about whose language they have written. 0.0.
