Abstract:

This book provides the first detailed grammar of Lavukaleve, a Papuan
Language spoken on the Russell Islands in the Central Province of the
Solomon Islands.

The phonology and morpho-phonology of Lavukaleve are described, as
well as arguments adjuncts, the Lavukaleve predicate structure
(including predicate types and core participant marking, the agreement
suffix, focus constructions, tense, aspect and mood, word-level
derivation, complex predicates), interclausal syntax, and the
Lavukaleve discourse organisation.

The book includes a list of affixes, a list of lexemes, and an
appendix with Lavukaleve texts. The data used in this work was
collected by the author during five field trips.
