This book is the first comprehensive grammar of the Udihe language, a
highly endangered and previously undescribed Tungus language spoken by
about 100 people in the Russian Far East. The grammar is almost unique
in being a substantially complete description of a Tungus language. It
is organized in the traditional way: a general introduction discussing
the geo- and socio-linguistic status of the language is followed by an
account of its phonology, morphology, and syntax; appended to this is
a selection of texts, a thematic vocabulary, a full bibliography, and
a subject index. The description is based on extensive field materials
collected by the authors among native speakers of Udihe between 1989
and 1997.

It is illustrated by rich empirical data in the form of sentence
examples and a collection of folklore texts with glosses and English
translations. Much use is made of cross-references between chapters
and sections, so that relevant information can easily be
found. Although the authors have drawn attention to phenomena that may
be of relevance for modern linguistic theorists, the grammar is not
biased towards any particular theoretical approach, and care has been
taken to ensure that the terminology used is theory-independent. The
book may be used as a reference grammar by scholars working within
differing theoretical frameworks, and will be of special interest to
students of linguistic typology.
