Abstract:
			
This volume contains fifteen fully analyzed Karao texts, collected in
the community of Karao in Benguet Province, Luzon, Philippines,
between 1988 and 2003 as part of on-going fieldwork. Karao is a
Southern Cordilleran language of the Northern Philippines and is
spoken by approximately 1400 people. The language displays typical
Philippine-type morphosyntax. Case marking has a consistently
ergative-absolutive pattern, but syntactic control displays a mixed
pattern in that control is distributed more or less evenly between the
two grammatical relations of the transitive clause.

The collection contains traditional narratives, including two classic
Karao accounts, one about how the Karaos came to their present
location in Benguet Province and the other about why snakes do not
bite the Karaos. In addition to traditional narrative, first-person
narrative, procedural, expository, and hortatory genre are also
represented.

Each text is presented in a four-line interlinearized format composed
of an orthographic representation, a morpheme analysis, a gloss for
each morpheme, and a free translation. A short introduction gives
information about the Karao people, the orthographic representation,
principles of analysis, and the version of localist case grammar used
for the analysis of verbs and semantic roles in the texts. Three
appendices provide additional details about nominal markers, pronouns,
verb affixes, and nominalizing affixes.
