Title: Faroese
Subtitle: An Overview and Reference Grammar
Written By: Höskuldur Thráinsson
Hjalmar P. Petersen
Jogvan i Lon Jacobsen
Zakaris Svabo Hansen
Description:

This book is intended as an overview and reference grammar of the modern Faroese language. It covers the relationship between Faroese orthography and phonetics, phonology, inflectional morphology, derivational morphology, syntax, dialects, andthe history of the Faroese language. It also contains extensive bibliographical references, both after each chapter and at the end of the book, and is thus more comprehensive than any previously written grammar of Faroese.

Since the book is intended for a wide readership, it presupposes very little knowledge of theoretical linguistics. It is basically a descriptive grammar which can be read by anyone who isfamiliar with traditional grammatical concepts.
