Abstract:

This volume provides the first comprehensive description of Bilinarra, a
Pama-Nyungan language of the Victoria River District of the Northern Territory
(Australia). Bilinarra is a highly endangered language with only one speaker
remaining in 2012 and no child learners. The materials on which this
grammatical description is based were collected by the authors over a 20 year
period from the last first-language speakers of the language, most of whom
have since passed away. Bilinarra is a member of the Ngumpin subgroup of
Pama-Nyungan which forms a part of the Ngumpin-Yapa family, which also
includes Warlpiri. It is non-configurational, with nominals commonly omitted,
arguments cross-referenced by pronominal clitics and word order grammatically
free and largely determined by information structure. In this grammatical
description much attention is paid to its morphosyntax, including case
morphology, the pronominal clitic system and complex predicates. A particular
strength of the volume is the provision of sound files for example sentences,
allowing the reader access to the language itself.
