     Walter A. Cook, S.J., author; CASE GRAMMAR APPLIED; Pb. ISBN:
     1-55671-046-1; xiii+275 pp., 1998, $29.00. Summer Institute of
     Linguistics and the University of Texas at Arlington.

     Dr. Walter Cook, S.J., is one of the promoters of the Georgetown
     University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics and author of numerous
     publications in linguistics. In CASE GRAMMAR THEORY (1989), the author
     described the Case Grammar models of Fillmore, Chafe, Anderson, Gruber,
     Jackendoff, and some tagmemicists as contrasting models within Case
     Grammar theory. In the present volume, intended as a companion volume to
     the previous one, we find a methodology for Case Grammar, tested in
     extended textual analysis including Ernest Hemingway's THE OLD MAN AND THE
     SEA. Because Case Grammar lends itself well to displaying the way
     syntactic features are associated with semantic structures, the author is
     able to use Case Grammar as an unusually clear, simple guide for sentence
     analysis. Internet: academic,books at sil.org

     Karen Ann Daley, author; VIETNAMESE CLASSIFIERS in Narrative Texts. Pb.
     ISBN: 1-55671-021-6; xii+214 pp., 1998, $29.00 Summer Institute of
     Linguistics, and the University of Texas at Arlington.

     Karen Daley leads the reader into what is perhaps the first discourse
     study of Vietnamese classifiers to date. After presenting a summary of
     classifiers and their function in languages of the world, she challenges
     the validity of regarding Vietnamese classifiers as simply fitting the
     prototypical pattern of phrase-level numeral classifiers. In Vietnamese
     several of the functions attributed to classifiers imply discourse
     relations, despite the prevailing assumption that their use is associated
     with the syntactic relations of phrases. A coherent pattern of classifier
     use becomes evident when they are observed in the larger syntactic
     environment of discourse. Daley uses discourse measurements of overall
     frequency, referential distance, and referential persistence and compares
     them with four criteria from a study of classifiers in White Hmong. The
     results in the present study indicate that the basic function of
     classifiers in Vietnamese discourse is referential--to mark salience.

     LONG Yaohong and ZHENG Guoqiao, authors, translated from Chinese by D.
     Norman GEARY; THE DONG LANGUAGE in Guizhou Province, China; Pb. ISBN:
     1-55671-051-8; xvi+272 pp., 1998, $29.00. Summer Institute of Linguistics
     and the University of Texas at Arlington.

     The Dong people are renowned within China for their beautiful singing and
     their architectural prowess. Their gifts have grown and flourished in the
     valleys and mountains of Guizhou, Hunan, and Guangxi Provinces of
     Southwestern China. In relative obscurity before the establishment of the
     People's Republic of China, the 2.5 million Dong people are fast gaining
     an international reputation.  The Dong language is distinctive for its
     many tones. It is often referred to outside China as Kam and occupies a
     significant position in the Kam-Tai family of the Sino-Tibetan phylum.
     Long Yaohong and Zhong Guoqiao are recognized authorities on Dong language
     research. Mr. Long is a native speaker of Dong. He provides an
     introduction, touching on many aspects of Dong history, culture, and
     language, and a discussion of the grammar. Mr. Zheng supplies sections on
     phonology, lexicon, and orthography. The two authors jointly present a
     chapter on Dong dialects.  The book as a whole represents the first
     comprehensive description of the Dong language available in English.

     Joan L.G. Baart, author; THE SOUNDS AND TONES OF KALAM KOHISTANI; WITH
     WORDLISTS AND TEXTS; Pb. ISBN: 969-8023-03-8; 1997, xvi+128 pp., $12.00.
     Summer Institute of Linguistics and National Institute of Pakistan
     Studies.

     This volume starts a new series "Studies in Languages of Northern
     Pakistan," published jointly by the Summer Institute of Linguistics and
     the National Institute of Pakistan Studies in Islamabad. The series will
     include studies of the phonology, grammar, lexicon, and oral literature of
     Kalasha, Shina, Burushaski, and other languages of northern Pakistan.
     Kalam Kohistani (in the literature also known as Garwi or Bashkarik)
     belongs to the Dardic branch of Indo-Aryan. The current volume presents a
     sketch of the sound system and tonal system of this language, based on
     recent fieldwork. It also makes a wordlist and text data available for
     further study.
