US$ 280.00
Qiang is a Tibeto-Burman language of southwest China, spoken by about 70,000 Qiang and Tibetan people in northern Sichuan Province. This book, the first book-length description of the Qiang language in English, includes not only the reference grammar, but also an ethnological overview, several fully analyzed texts (mostly traditional stories) and an annotated glossary. The language is verb final, and agglutinative (prefixing and suffixing), with a very complex phonological system and both head-marking and dependent marking morphology. It will be of use to typologists, comparativists, Sino-Tibetanists, anthropologists, and linguists in general.
