Discourse, Paragraph, and Sentence Structure in Selected Philippine Languages. Final Report. Volume III, Text Material.
Longacre, Robert E.
The purpose of this volume is to provide analyzed samples of discourses of various genre in some of the languages studied in the project. (For Volumes I and II, see AL 002 031 and AL 002 032.) Many of the discourses cited in Volume I are given in this volume. A representative selection of the paragraphs which are given in English translation in Volume I also occurs in the discourses here reproduced. Furthermore, some of the texts identify the sentence types of the constituent sentences of the discourses. This makes it possible to see the sentence types in context. Finally, the role of conjunctives and connecting particles is well illustrated. This volume of text divides naturally into three parts: (1) from Luzon (Bontoc, Itnet, and Botolan Sambal text material); (2) Mindanao exclusive of Manobo (Sarangani Bilaan, Tagabili, and Mansaka); and (3) Manobo (Ilianen Manobo and Dibabawon texts).
