Hierarchy and Universality of Discourse Constituents in New Guinea Languages: Texts.
Longacre, Robert E.
This volume accompanies and illustrates "Hierarchy and Universality of Discourse Constituents in New Guinea Languages: Discussion" (FL 003 513), which reports on research carried out in New Guinea and surrounding areas. This volume provides sample texts, over and beyond the fragmentary examples given in the discussion text. The examples of discourse provided here are of several varieties--including procedural, narrative, expository, hortatory, dramatic, instructional, explanatory, and descriptive discourse. The texts are taken from the following languages: Kosena, Wojokeso, Golin, Oksapmin, and Bahinemo. (VM)
