Book Information

   

Title: A Grammar of Mani
Written By: G. Tucker Childs
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/178110?result=1&rskey=0dVySV&format=G
Series Title: Mouton Grammar Library [MGL] 54
Description:

This book provides a complete grammar of the Mani language spoken in the
Samu (alternate French spelling “Samou”) region of Sierra Leone andGuinea.
The data come from a short pilot study conducted during July and August of
2000, and a larger study taking place over two years (the Mani Documentation
Project or MDP, 2004-06, and two brief returns in April 2009 and February 2010).
That the Mani language will soon disappear is certain; just as certain is that this
grammar will be the only one ever written.
