Abstract:

This volume comprises the first comprehensive grammar of a language
from the Aslian subgroup, within the Mon-Khmer branch of the
Austroasiatic family. Spoken by approximately 4,000 people in the
lowland forests of the Malay Peninsula, Semelai has many distinctive
features of interest to linguistic typologists, phonologists,
morphologists and syntacticians. The volume provides a unique
reference resource for South-East Asian language specialists, as well
as general linguists.

Contents:
1. Aslian languages and peoples; 2. Phonology and phonotactics;
3. Morphological processes; 4. Word classes; 5. The verb; 6. Pronouns:
personal, ignorative, and demonstrative; 7. The noun phrase;
8. Prepositions and the prepositional phrase; 9. Grammatical
relations, word order and coding strategies; 10. The syntax of the
basic clause; 11. Complex clauses; 12. Expressives, 'quote',
interjections and clitics; Appendix of texts; References.
