Title: A Grammar of Klon
Subtitle: A non–Austronesian language of Alor, Indonesia
Written By: Louise Baird
URL: http://pacling.anu.edu.au/
Description:

The languages spoken on the Alor archipelago in Indonesia are
geographically the west-most non-Austronesian languages. Klon is one of
these languages, spoken on the west coast of the island of Alor . This is
the first descriptive grammar of Klon, adding to the slowly growing – but
as yet mainly unpublished – body of knowledge concerning the structure of
the Alor languages.

This grammar is primarily based on a corpus of spoken texts from the Bring
dialect. Phonetics and phonology, morphology, clausal and inter-clausal
syntax are described, including the pronominal system which works on an
agentive basis, and commonly used serial verb constructions.
