This book presents a new theory of grammatical categories - the Universal Spine Hypothesis - and reinforces generative notions of Universal Grammar while accommodating insights from linguistic typology.
This is a grammar of the Nabak language of the Huon Peninsula, PNG; a non-Austronesian language. It is a language with extensive morphophonemics. The grammar includes numerous glossed examples, together with several texts and a dictionary. A major focus is an informal account of Nabak cohesion.
