Title: Manchu Grammar
Written By: L.M. Gorelova
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=10138
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 8: Uralic & Central Asian Studies
Description:

With the help of this long-awaited comprehensive grammar of Manchu, the
official language in China during the Qing dynasty, access can be gained to
the numerous official documents of more than 250 years of Chinese history
immediately preceding the Republic.

Taking into full account the scholarship on the subject from both China and
Russia, the volume provides full coverage of the Manchu writing system,
morphology and phonology. Special attention is given to syntax, until
recently a conspicuous hiatus in Manchu linguistic studies. Also dealt with
is Sibe, which the author convincingly argues to be a direct successor of
Manchu vernacular, and its relation with classical Manchu.
Many grammatical problems of Manchu are considered in a wider framework of
the Manchu-Tungusic languages - the group to which Manchu belongs.

Dr. Gorelova's grammar is a true reference work, indispensable for students
of (Qing) China and Oriental languages.
