Discourse, Paragraph, and Sentence Structure in Selected Philippine Languages. Final Report. Volume II, Sentence Structure.
Longacre, Robert E.
Volume II of "Discourse, Paragraph, and Sentence Structure in Selected Philippine Languages" begins with an explanation of certain assumptions and postulates regarding sentence structure. A detailed treatment of systems of sentence structure and the parameters of such systems follows. Data in the various indigenous languages are regularly presented to illustrate the various sentence types; but for an understanding of the context of the sentence in discourse, Volume III (AL 002 033) of the report must be consulted. See also AL 002 032. (DO)
