'It is a very comprehensive and full description that Rennison has produced, and it is a great contribution to linguistic knowledge to have such detailed documentation of a truly endangered language.' - SOAS Bulletin, Vol61, No. 198
'Altogether John Rennison's work represents for his completeness not only a noteworthy contribution to our knowledge about the languages of the region (of Burkina Faso) enriching our data on the Gur family, but it is also an important documentation of a language which, being spoken by only a few people, could easily disappear and be lost to our research in a not so far distant future.' - Anthropos 4/6 1998
About the Series
The rise of language typology and and increasing interest in the study of language universals have produced a large number of theoreticians who require accurate, well-formulated descriptive data from a wide range of languages. The Descriptive Grammars series provides the required framework, making cross-language comparisons possible and enabling a really fruitful interaction between theoretical and descriptive linguistics. A wide variety of well-known and lesser-known languages are covered and the information is arranged to be readily accessable to linguists working on language universals, language typology, comparative syntax, morphology, or phonology.
