Description:

This third volume on Missionary Linguistics focuses on morphology and
syntax. It contains a selection of papers derived from the international
conferences on missionary linguistics held in Hong Kong/Macau and
Valladolid. As with the previous two volumes (2004, on general issues, and
2005, on orthography and phonology), this volume looks at methodology and
descriptive techniques from a historical point of view, offering articles
of interest to historiographers of linguistics, typologists, and
descriptive linguists. It presents research into languages such as Tarasco
(Pur’épecha), Massachusett, Nahuatl, Conivo, Sipibo, Guaraní, Vietnamese,
Tamil, Southern Min Chinese dialects, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, Tagalog and
other Austronesian languages, such as Yapese and Chamorro.
