A SHORT SYNOPSIS OF THE MOST ESSENTIAL POINTS IN HAWAIIAN GRAMMAR.
ALEXANDER, W.D.
THIS IS A REPRINT OF A BOOK PUBLISHED IN 1864. IT IS INTENDED AS A REFERENCE GRAMMAR FOR STUDENTS OF HAWAIIAN AND FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN THE COMPARATIVE GRAMMAR OF THE POLYNESIAN LANGUAGES. IT FOLLOWS THE PATTERN OF THE TRADITIONAL GRAMMARS OF THE TIME, BUT THE AUTHOR WAS AWARE OF THE DANGER OF IMPOSING ON HAWAIIAN THE CATEGORIES OF EUROPEAN LANGUAGES. THE BOOK IS DIVIDED INTO TWO MAIN PARTS--(1) ORTHOEPY (PHONOLOGY) AND ETYMOLOGY (MORPHOLOGY), AND (2) SYNTAX. PART ONE DISCUSSES PRONUNCIATION AND THE PARTS OF SPEECH. PART TWO DISCUSSES THE STRUCTURE OF THE HAWAIIAN SENTENCE WITH PARTICULAR ATTENTION GIVEN TO THOSE GRAMMATICAL DEVICES WHICH DETERMINE WORD ORDER. EVERY POINT IN THE BOOK IS ILLUSTRATED WITH SEVERAL EXAMPLES. THIS 59-PAGE BOOK WAS PUBLISHED BY CHARLES E. TUTTLE COMPANY, INC., RUTLAND, VERMONT 05701 AND TOKYO, JAPAN WITH EDITORIAL OFFICES AT SUIDO 1-CHOME, 2-6, BUNKYO-KU, TOKYO, JAPAN ($1.00). (TP)
