Description:
The syntax of Fulniô (Yahthe) is presented here in terms of three basic structural levels; in ascending order, ranging from the least to the most complex, these are: word level, phrase level, and sentence level. One exception is in the treatment of verbs, where it was necessary to also describe the stem level. In other word classes, stems and affixes are dealt with in a general way in the description of the word level. At the other extreme there are probably significant levels of structure beyond the sentence, such as the paragraph and the discourse. These have not yet been adequately studied and are not dealt with in this paper. The three levels presented here contrast in the type of structures which are included within them and in their distribution within a larger matrix.
