A grammar of Tetun Dili

by Catharina Williams-van Klinken, John Hajek, Rachel Nordlinger
PL 520

Tetun Dili is an Austronesian language spoken as a first language in
Dili, East Timor. It is also spoken as a lingua franca throughout
much of this fledgling nation, and is set to become its national
language. This grammar describes the basic structure of Tetun Dili,
covering phonology and morphology, as well as phrase-, clause- and
sentence-level syntax. It is based on a corpus of both spoken and
written texts, supplemented by elicitation. While the focus is
primarily on the spoken language, comparisons are made with both
written and liturgical varieties. In contrast to the more
conservative Tetun Terik variety, Tetun Dili shows strong Portuguese
influence after centuries of contact, particularly in its lexicon and
phonology. This work constitutes the most detailed grammatical
description to date of any language of East Timor, complementing an
earlier description of Tetun Terik as spoken in West Timor.
