Palauan Reference Grammar

  • About the Book
  • The Palauan reference grammar offers a comprehensive description of the language that will interest speakers of Palauan and linguists alike. Although the linguistic phenomena of Palauan are often extremely complex, special efforts have been made to keep explanations as simple and clear as possible while capturing the essential phonological and grammatical principles unique to the language. Learning is facilitated by extensive cross-referencing, a list of phonetic and orthographic symbols, a glossary of relevant linguistic terms, a brief bibliography, and an index. Material is presented in order of difficulty, with an analysis at each stage. Some information of a highly technical nature is also included for readers with a background in linguistics.
