Title: A grammar of Pacoh
Subtitle: A Mon-Khmer language of the central highlands of Vietnam
Written By: Mark J. Alves
URL: http://www.pacling.com/catalogue/580.html
Series Title: Shorter Grammars
Description:

Pacoh is a member of the Katuic group of the Mon-Khmer language family. It
is spoken by about 10,000 people in the central highlands of Vietnam. The
language is currently undergoing substantial change under the influence of
Vietnamese. Pacoh shares many typological characteristics in common with
other Mon-Khmer languages including a topic-comment style of basic SVO
syntax. It is a classifier language with noun-modifier word order. The
major word formation processes are prefixation with 'presyllables'
(deriving such things as causative verbs), infixation (deriving nouns from
verbs, for example) and reduplication. In common with many other Mon-Khmer
languages, Pacoh has a sesquisyllabic word structure in which presyllables
are unstressed, and vowel phonemes show a distinction in register.

This book describes the major features of Pacoh grammar and also contains a
glossary of Pacoh words. It is an extensively revised version of the
author's PhD dissertation from the University of Hawaii .
