Abstract:

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.
