ILCAA Joint Research Project

Reconstructing Grammatical Phenomena from the Viewpoint of Tibeto-Burman Languages - Stage 2 : Characterization and Classification of Sentences (jrp000163)

About the Project

Project term: April, 2009 - March, 2011

The project studies structural and functional aspects displayed by sentences of Tibeto-Burman (TB) languages. It is designed for members describing TB languages to share facts relevant to sentences they have uncovered, and the width and depth of perspective of observation, thereby advance descriptions by each members and enrich on understanding of sentences of TB languages. We plan to have three meetings this year. Members are to make a presentation on the sentences of their object languages, especially focusing on the classification of verb sentences with respect to speech-act types, the possible types of non-verb sentence and the distribution of copula (if any). Next year we will discuss the concepts and factors crucial to the descriptions of sentences of TB languages. Contents of the meetings such as summaries of each report are publicized on our website. The publication on sentences of TB languages is also planned.
