dc.description.abstractThis paper presents a general model for the structure of the traditional descriptive grammar based on a survey of four printed grammars, each of which was chosen as representative of a different "genre": a "best-practice" grammar, Haspelmath's (1993) Lezgian grammar; a grammar representing the traditions of a specific area/family, Maganga and Schadeberg's (1992) grammar of Kinyamwezi, a Bantu language; a grammar from the Routledge Descriptive Grammars series, Huttar and Huttar's (1994) grammar of Ndyuka; and a "legacy" grammar, Williamson's (1965) grammar of Ijaw, which remains an important resource for the language despite making use of a dated syntactic formalism.en_US
