Abstract:

This work makes accessible rare, collected linguistic data from the
late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth centuries. The study presents the
earliest reliable records of a number of Mayan languages, as opposed to
previous materials written primarily by colonial sources.

Reviews

"Truly, with this publication an early Maya linguistic star is brought to
light!" - Prof. Robert M. Carmack, State University of New York at
Albany


". . . these notebooks are a monument to an intellect rarely matched, to an
inquiring mind of an unusual sort, to a person who was able to operate
essentially autonomously in a field work context that was hardly conducive
to intellectual pursuits." - Dr. Nicholas A. Hopkins

". . . for several of these languages, although published materials exist
from the end of the twentieth century, there is little or no data available
on them from Burkitt's time." - Prof. Martha J. Macri, University of
California, Davis

Abstract:

Amharic is the language most widely spoken and written in Abyssinia at the
present day. It is indigenous not only in Amhara, the district from which
the name is taken, but over the greater part of Central Abyssinia. As a
language of commerce it is heard beyond the limits of Abyssinia proper. Two
principal dialects are distinguished, that of Gojjam and that of Shoa (from
the introduction).

Contents: Phonetic alphabet, the Amharic characters, punctuation, doubling
consonants, crasis or contraction of adjacent vowels, substantive, the
Ethiopic accusative, pronouns, numerals, primitive and derived forms of the
verb, voice, mood, tense, contingent, jussive, paradigms of derived forms
of the verb, syntax, etc.
