Sentence Analysis in Modern Malay.
Lewis, M. Blanche
The author suggest that this book, written primarily as a working textbook for second-year university students reading Malay, may also be used by those "interested in the application of a formal grammatical framework to the sentences of a language which belongs to the Austronesian family." Basing her analysis on the principles of structural linguistics, the author deals with word types and classes, phrases and groups, clauses and sentences, and presents short analyses of consecutive sentences from the texts, with tabulated results. Appended are: A conspectus of the grammatical framework; notes on Immediate Constituency and Transformational Grammar; the four texts in Malay from which the analyzed sentences were taken, and their English translations; a reference list; a Malay-English glossary; a footnote index; and a list of the sentences analyzed or discussed.
