Abstract:

A pre-Indo-European language with no known relatives, the Basque language
survives in the Basque region of Spain and France, with about half a
million native or near-native speakers. The local diversity of the
language, with no fewer than eight different dialects, has hindered the
development of a supradialectical written tradition. Twentieth-century
Basque scholars recognized that the introduction of a standard language for
written communication was vital for the continued existence of Basque, and
the Euskaltzaindia, the Royal Academy of the Basque Language, has
supervised the creation of a new shared form, Euskara Batua ("Unified
Basque"), to be used as a written standard.

Standard Basque: A Progressive Grammar is the first modern pedagogically
oriented reference grammar in English for this new standard language. It
guides the reader progressively through 33 chapters covering topics that
range from orthography and pronunciation to case endings, verb forms,
ergativity, the antipassive, and allocutive forms. In addition to
information on the various dialects, the book includes thousands of example
sentences drawn from Basque literature and extensive vocabulary listings.
Most chapters conclude with exercises. Part 1 covers the grammar and Part 2
contains glosses for the example sentences and indexes.
