Title: A Grammar of Neverver
Written By: Julie Barbour
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/183228?format=G
Series Title: Mouton Grammar Library [MGL] 60
Description:

Neverver is an Oceanic language spoken by just over 500 people on the high island of Malekula in Vanuatu. Drawing on an extensive corpus of field recordings collected between 2004 and 2008, the analysis reveals a very interesting phonological system with six prenasalized segments, rich systems of possession, tense/aspect/mood marking, valence change, and verb serialization. The grammar is of interest to specialists in Oceanic and Austronesian linguistics, as well as to general linguists, especially those interested in linguistic typology.
