Abstract:
			
Araki, an unwritten Austronesian language belonging to the Oceanic
subgroup, is now spoken by less than a dozen people in a small islet
of Vanuatu; it is likely to disappear very soon. As the first ever
publication about this language, the present study covers all that it
has been possible to gather from it.

The core of this book is a grammatical description of Araki: attention
has been paid to its phonology and morphology, the inventory of
syntactic categories, the internal organisation of noun and verb
phrases, the semantics of aspect and mood, complex sentence
construction, and many other topics which illustrate the originality
of this language. A bilingual lexicon is also provided, as well as a
selection of texts.
