Robinson, Dow Frederick
This grammar describes the word structure of a Nahuat dialect of Southern Mexico. The model used for this description is an eclectic one based on "the morphological principles of Nida, Pike's tagmeme, transforms as delineated by Lees, the syntagmeme of Longacre, and the transformational relationships as specified by Gleason." The study begins with an introductory section which briefly outlines the phonologies of Nahuatlan languages and discusses the author's descriptive model at some length. Major sections then describe the verb-syntagmeme, the locative-syntagmeme, and the particle-syntagmeme. A bibliography concludes the study. (FWB)
