Book Information


Title: A Grammar of Madurese
Written By: William D. Davies
Series Title: Mouton Grammar Library [MGL] 50

Madurese is a major regional language of Indonesia, with some 14 million
speakers, mainly on the island of Madura and adjacent parts of Java, making
it the fourth largest language of Indonesia after Indonesian, Javanese, and
Sundanese. There is no existing comprehensive descriptive grammar of the
language, with existing studies being either sketches of the whole grammar,
or detailed descriptions of phonology and morphology or some particular
topics within these components of the grammar. There is no competing work
that provides the breadth and depth of coverage of this grammar, in
particular (though not exclusively) with regard to syntax.
