Title: A Grammar of Warrongo
Written By: Tasaku Tsunoda
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/128944?format=G
Series Title: Mouton Grammar Library [MGL] 53
Description:

Warrongo is an extinct Australian Aboriginal language that used to be spoken in
northeast Australia. This volume is largely based on the rich data recorded from
the last fluent speaker. It details the phonology, morphology and syntax of the
language. In particular, it provides a truly scrutinizing description of syntactic
ergativity - a phenomenon that is rare among the world's language. It also shows
that, unlike some other Australian languages, Warrongo has noun phrases that
are configurational. Overall this volume shows what can be documented of a
language that has only one speaker.
