Abstract:

A Grammar of Dolakha Newar is the first fully comprehensive reference
grammar of a Newar variety. Dolakha Newar is of particular interest as it
is member of the mutually unintelligible eastern branch of the family, so
allows for an important comparative perspective on this significant
Tibeto-Burman language. In addition to a chapter on phonetics and
phonology, the book contains a separate chapter on prosody. There are also
distinct chapters on each word class, with full discussion of the
morphological and syntactic properties of each class. The book provides an
extensive study of syntax, including complete chapters on constructions,
clause structure, constituent order, grammatical relations, nominalization,
complementation, the participial construction, and the complex sentence, as
well as a detailed chapter on tense and aspect.

Brimming with examples from natural discourse, the book couples rigorous
description of the language's structures with full discussion of how the
structures are used in connected speech. Each analysis is presented with
full argumentation and competing analyses are contrasted and discussed. The
result is a rich, readable, and beautifully argued portrait of a language
and how it works.

Of interest to:

Research Libraries, Researchers and Advanced Students of Linguistics
(Typology, Himalayan Linguistics).
