 Abstract:
 
 Lithuanian is an Indo-European language and belongs with Latvian to
 the Baltic branch of those languages. It is a very young standardized 
 language, dating from the turn of the nineteenth-twentieth centuries
 and made the official language of Lithuania in 1918. Its youth
 largely accounts for the tendency to support its norms as
 established. The focus here is on a concise exposition of a number of 
 aspects of the standard language. It is not meant to be
 comprehensive, but points up important research areas, aims to
 provide practical help in mastering above all questions of morphology 
 and accent, and complements Mathiassen 1996 and Ambrazas 1997. After
 a presentation of linguistic and sociolinguistic background
 information, spelling and phonology are examined, after which the
 focus is on morphology and syntax, with the role of accent fully
 borne in mind. A concise but detailed exploration of nouns,
 adjectives, pronouns, numerals, and verbs is made, in the case of the 
 last in particular characterizing the various moods, aspect and
 aktionsart, and verbal classification. Adverbs, prepositions,
 conjunctions, interjections and onomatopoeic words are considered,
 and word order and particles are examined. A short, up-to-date
 bibliography is appended.
