it was ok
bookshelves: linguistics, not-my-own
Recommended to André by: Balthasar Bickel
Read in July, 2008

I had to read this grammar for a presentation in "Typologie Grammatischer Relationen", seems interesting, although I do not always agree with Durie's analyses. What he names "clitics" don't seem to me like clitics at all. It's also not too easy to read. And he made several mistakes concerning raising constructions. Anyways, I got a nice overview on Aceh.
