Abstract:

Manipuri (called Meiteilon in the language itself) is a Tibeto-Burman
language belonging to the Kuki-Chin subgroup. The language is spoken
primarily in the valley region of the State of Manipur, India
(ca. 700,000 speakers, ca. 300,000 speakers in Burma, ca. 100,000
speakers in Assam, ca. 50,000 in Bangladesh and 30,000 in Tripura).
The grammar of Manipuri shows a number of interesting typological
characteristics: There are only two major lexical categories, namely
nouns and verbs, with adjectives and adverbs merging rather
unrecognizably with verbs. Inflectional markers also split into two
distinct categories, namely nominal and verbal inflections with
exclusive membership. The volume contains 14 chapters: Introduction,
Phonology, Word-formation, Sentence structure, Nominal category, Use
of case suffixes, Verbal category, Directional and deictic verb
distinctions, Valency patterns, Tense, aspect and mood, Modyfying
constructions, Complementation, Illocutionary distinctions.
