 Daniel Abondolo, ed,, THE URALIC LANGUAGES
 This book provides a unique survey of individual Uralic languages and 
 sub-groupings from Finnish to Selkup and Obugrian to Samoyedic. Giving 
 both an overview and then detailed analyses of the Uralic languages, 
 the volume describes their history and development as well as focusing 
 on their linguistic structure. Each chapter is similarly-structured, 
 designed for comparative study and including phonology, morphology, 
 syntax, lexicon and sample text where available. Each includes 
 numerous tables to support and illustrate the text and bibliographies 
 of the major references in each language to aid further study.
