ESTONIAN GRAMMAR. URALIC AND ALTAIC SERIES, VOLUME 12.
HARMS, ROBERT T.
THIS GRAMMAR IS A DESCRIPTIVE ANALYSIS OF CERTAIN FUNDAMENTAL FEATURES OF THE ESTONIAN LANGUAGE BASED UPON THE SPEECH OF AN EDUCATED NATIVE INFORMANT FROM TARTU. IT CONTAINS A DETAILED STUDY OF THE PHONEMIC, MORPHOPHONEMIC, AND INFLECTIONAL SYSTEMS AS WELL AS BRIEF SKETCHES OF STEM EXPANSION AND SYNTAX. THE AUTHOR HAS EMPLOYED THE TRANSFORMATIONAL MODEL OF SYNTAX AS DEVELOPED BY CHOMSKY AND LEES IN A SYNTACTICAL SKETCH WHICH CONSISTS PRIMARILY OF A SHORT PHRASE STRUCTURE TOGETHER WITH THE MOST ESSENTIAL OBLIGATORY TRANSFORMATIONAL RULES. A DISCUSSION OF VOWEL AND CONSONANT LENGTH AND NOTES ON THE TEXT ARE INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIX. A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SELECTED GENERAL AND ESTONIAN LINGUISTIC WORKS COMPLETES THIS VOLUME. THIS INDIANA UNIVERSITY PUBLICATION MAY BE ORDERED FROM THE EDITOR, URALIC AND ALTAIC SERIES, RAYL HOUSE, INDIANA UNIVERSITY, BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 47401, FOR $3.00. (AMM)
