Description
This excellent grammar provides everything (and more!) which one has come to expect of grammars in the Mouton Grammar Library series: maps, a 546-page grammar, 60 pages of transcribed texts, a 164-page Kayardild-English dictionary with illustrations, photographs of language consultants, author index, language index, and subject index. Even for this series, however, A Grammar of Kayardild provides an extremely rich account of the language. It goes well beyond the requirements of a descriptive grammar in its detailed discussions of supposed prehistory of the language and the language group (Tangkic). As explained by the author, the Grammar core of the book derives from a 1985 A.N.U. dissertation. Additional textual and lexical material were collected after that and incorporated into the exemplary Texts and Dictionary sections of the present book.
