Book Description

This book provides an up-to-date survey of Uralic languages, using a new theoretical framework commonly used in language description. Spoken by more than 25 million native speakers, the Uralic languages have important cultural and social significance in Europe, as well as in other communities throughout the world. The introductory chapter gives an overview of the Uralic language family, and is followed by 20 chapter-length descriptions of each language or sub-grouping, giving an analysis of their history and development, as well as their linguistic structures. Each chapter includes tables to support the text, and bibliographies of the major references for each language.
