VIETNAMESE (The following all came from

Husby, Olaf. VIETNAMESISK GRAMMATIKK. in Norwegian. (It is a description of
the history, phonology and grammar of the VN language. It is aimed at
teachers of VN students, but goes into to detail on certain items. There is
a quite detailed description of the orthographic system, the presentation of
sounds in orthography, and phonotactics. If you are interested, just contact
me. In the meantime I mail you a list of the literature I used.)
