Grammars of World and Minority Languages

Series Editors: Lily Kahn and Riitta-Liisa Valijärvi

This series consists of accessible yet thorough Open Access grammars of the world’s languages intended for a broad audience, including the scholarly community, students and the general public. There is a focus on languages that presently lack modern, jargon-free, English-medium descriptions of their basic structures. As such, many of the titles in the series are devoted to less commonly taught languages and to regional, minority, and endangered languages. Each volume includes a historical and sociolinguistic introduction to the language followed by sections on phonology, orthography, morphology, syntax, and lexis, as well as text samples, a thematic glossary, and a bibliography for further study. An important aim of the series is to promote and support the study, teaching, and in some cases revitalisation of less commonly taught languages by providing a prominent forum for their grammatical description.
