Title: Towards a Lexicogrammar of Mekeo (An Austronesian Language of West Central Papua)
Written By: Alan A. Jones
Description:

In this volume Jones compares the four dialects of Mekeo, which vary widely in terms of mutual intelligibility, and suggests that Mekeo is a predominantly head-marking language in which 'non-verbs' function as topics or predicates. A high level of referential indeterminacy complicates discourse.
