Book Information

   

Title: A Grammar of (Western) Garrwa
Written By: Ilana Mushin
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/186090?format=G
Series Title: Pacific Linguistics 637
Description:

Mushin provides the first full grammatical description of Garrwa, a critically endangered language of the Southwest Gulf of Carpentaria region in Northern Australia. Garrwa is typologically interesting because of its uncertain status in the Australian language family, its pronouns and its word order syntax. This book covers Garrwa phonology, morphology and syntax, with a particular focus on the use of grammar in discourse. The grammatical description is supplemented with a word list and text collection, including transcriptions of ordinary conversation.
