Book Information

   

Title: A Grammar of Maybrat
Subtitle: A language of the Bird's Head Peninsula, Papua Province, Indonesia
Written By: Philomena Dol
Series Title: Pacific Linguistics
Description:

Maybrat is a Papuan language which is spoken in the central area of the
Bird's Head Peninsula, Papua Province, Indonesia. Despite the fact that it
is one of the larger local languages in Papua Province in terms of numbers
of speakers, a comprehensive grammar on this language has hitherto not been
published.

This book aims to give an overview of the phonology, morphology and syntax
of the Maybrat language as it is spoken by the people of Ayawasi. Ideally,
this work can be used as a reference grammar: it gives information about
the most important structural and typological aspects of Maybrat. With
this in mind, the grammar is full of illustrative examples centred around
contrasts in form and meaning, which are discussed in the text.
