A North West Caucasian Linguistic Reader by John Colarusso

A North West Caucasian Linguistic ReaderEdited by John Colarusso with the help of B. George and Zaira Hewitt for the Abzhwi Abkhaz text. This Reader in Northwest Caucasian Languages brings together for the first time grammatical sketches and examples from all the languages of this typologically unusual family, including three dialects of Circassian and three of Abkhaz-Abaza, plus Ubykh. The texts are traditional tales, including two pagan hymns, all of which have been phonemicized (with an 81st consonant added to Ubykh), morphologically analyzed, glossed, and translated.

This volume will be of use to those who wish to maintain these languages or to revive them, since all are now endangered. Theoretical linguists will also find this volume interesting for the numerous unusual features that these languages exhibit. Their large consonantal inventories and vertical vowel systems are known.
