Veronica du Feu'sRapanui: A Descriptive Grammaris only the third book ever published on Rapanui--it is also the most up-to-date. Rapanui, the language of the Easter Islands, is spoken by fewer than 2000 people and is in danger of extinction. ThisDescriptiveGrammar, based on recordings made in the 1980s and on information provided by the islanders, represents du Feu's determination to record the language before it dies out. All linguistic aspects are covered, including the syntax, morphology, phonology and lexicon of the language. Just as importantly, the book has been structured in such a way as to facilitate cross-language comparisons. There are over 800 illustrative sentences, each accompanied by interlinear grammatical analysis and translation, as well as a Rapanui folk tale, in both the original and in English. Finally, as a source of vocabulary, this volume goes beyond any previously available dictionaries.
