The Language of the Maldives
Ed. by David, Anne
Series:Mouton-CASL Grammar Series 3
Aims and Scope
Dhivehi, the language of the Maldives, has received little attention in the linguistic literature, and no other comprehensive grammar of the standard language has yet been published.
This work describes the phonology, unique orthography, morphology, and syntax of standard Dhivehi. Plentiful examples with native orthography, Roman transliteration, and morpheme-by-morpheme glossing illustrate the various features of the language.
This grammar will be of use both to linguists and to students of Dhivehi.
