Book Information

   

Title: Intensive Tausug
Written By: CarlR.Rubino
Description:

Intensive Tausug was written to serve as either a self-study pedagogical
grammar or an interactive classroom textbook aimed at introducing the
student to the fundamental skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing
in the language of Jolo Island and vicinity (Pata, Marunggas, Tapul and
Lugus), and the lingua franca of the Sulu Archipelago, Philippines. This book
is divided into twenty lessons, each one centered around a number of
grammatically, thematically or culturally relevant dialogues. New vocabulary
that occurs in the dialogues immediately follows each dialogue.

Intensive Tausug was designed with an aggressive curricular agenda under
the assumption that most users of the book will have already proficiency in
Tagalog or another Philippine languages, so much of the description focuses
on phenomena in Tausug that are divergent from Tagalog, rather than
Austronesian features that would seem exotic to an English speaker.
