Description

The series builds an extensive collection of high quality descriptions of languages around the world. Each volume offers a comprehensive grammatical description of a single language together with fully analyzed sample texts and, if appropriate, a word list and other relevant information which is available on the language in question. There are no restrictions as to language family or area, and although special attention is paid to hitherto undescribed languages, new and valuable treatments of better known languages are also included. No theoretical model is imposed on the authors; the only criterion is a high standard of scientific quality.

Texte du rabat

Domari is an Indo-Aryan language that is now highly endangered. Its speakers were traditionally nomadic metalworkers and musicians who lived in tiny, geographically scattered and socially isolated communities throughout the Middle East. The grammar is based on conversational material recorded in Jerusalem in the mid-1990s with some of the last speakers of this particular variety.



Résumé

"[...] the book is written in a clear and rich style which makes it easy to read. It will benefit everyone interested in language contact, Indo-Aryan languages, including students of Romani, and other Gypsy languages. Also valuable to the field of grammaticography is the author s efforts to put pragmatics at the centre of linguistic description."
Bruno Hérin in: Linguist List 24.1141
