Abstract: The 56th grammar in the prestigious Mouton Grammar Library series, it is a comprehensive, high quality description of Saamaka written by two researchers who have extensively published on the language. The grammar follows the stipulation of the editors in that it does not follow any particular theoretical model. The volume consists of an introduction, 17 chapters dealing with different areas of grammar, a two-page word list, glossed passages from a recorded folktale and a conversational interaction, a reference list, and an extensive subject index.
