Title: A Grammar of Tawala: An Austronesian Language of the Milne Bay Area, Papua New Guinea
Written By: Bryan Ezard
Description:

This volume presents a grammar of the Tawala language. Tawala is a radically head-marking language and this grammar takes explicit account of attendant analytic issues. Considerable attention is also given to derivation which, in Tawala, is a function of the grammar rather than the lexicon. Also a holistic model of the clause accounts for both verbal and non-verbal construction.
