A Study of the Aklanon Dialect. Volume One: Grammar.
de la Cruz, Beato A.; Zorc, R. David Paul
The purposes of this grammar of Aklanon are to: (1) provide teachers with a sourcebook on their dialect, so that they can understand the formalities of Aklanon; (2) provide foreign learners of the dialect, particularly Peace Corps volunteers or missionaries, with a reference grammar; and (3) provide linguists with a treatment of an unresearched dialect. The grammar is divided into the following six units: (1) "Preliminary Remarks on Aklanon"; (2) "Phonology, The Significant Sounds of the Aklanon Dialect"; (3) "Linguistic Background"; (4) "Morphophonemics in Aklanon"; (5) "The Basic Parts of Speech"; and (6) Function Words. The grammar is followed by a bibliography of linguistic and dialect study books. (CLK)
