Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
|Series/Report no.:||Generals Paper|
|Abstract:||An account of the morpho-syntax of Ngarluma, an Australian language spoken in the Pilbara, is given based on Kenneth Hale's fieldnotes together with Carl von Brandenstein's published texts. The analysis uses the W* framework proposed by Kenneth Hale, to describe the free word order, discontinuous phrases, valence-changing suffixes, case system and use of case to indicate identity of controllers.|
|Description:||The paper was typewritten with handwritten labels and diagrams, and has faded badly. It was submitted as a generals paper in 1981. Some of the data and analysis were cited in later literature.|
