Area, Papua New Guinea
1997, vi+320pp. Softcover. A$59.60 plus postage
ISBN 0 85883 458 8
Pacific Linguistics catalogue number, C-137.

Key words: Austronesian languages; PNG; grammar; head-marking; derivational
processes; function; non-verbal clauses.

This volume presents a grammar of the Tawala language. Tawala is a
radically head-marking language and this grammar takes explicit account of
attendant analytic issues. Considerable attention is also given to
derivation which, in Tawala, is a function of the grammar rather than the
lexicon. Also a holistic model of the clause accounts for both verbal and
non-verbal construction.
Key words: Austronesian languages; PNG; grammar; head-marking; derivational
processes; function; non-verbal clauses.
