Description:
from Preface: "This brief overview of the grammar of the Agutaynen language is written with an Agutaynen audience in mind. It is aimed at speakers of Agutaynen who also understand English well, and who wish to explore on a more conscious level the grammatical patterns of their own language. It is written to accompany an Agutaynen-English dictionary, which has been in process over the past two decades. The dictionary is meant to capture something of the wealth of the Agutaynen lexicon—its individual words and their meanings. This grammatical overview is meant to give a better idea of how those words fit together to form sentences. Even a large book could not fully document the beauty and complexity of the Agutaynen language. This overview is offered as a small window through which one can glimpse some of its main contours."
