Aspects of Tense and Aspect in Fas

BARON, Wietze, author. Available: 2012; Created: 1983-84. Aspects of Tense and Aspect in Fas. [Manuscript]. : s.n. 46 pages.

Comments: The following notes were written in 1983-1984 as part of a first rough draft on Fas grammar. The Fas language was studied at intermittent periods from 1978 to 1988. The rather abrupt and untimely end of the research programme meant that much data and rough drafts remained unpublished and unavailable. Given a renewed interest in Papuan languages and the accommodating emergence of the Internet, it seemed a good idea to make these data as yet available. The notes have only been slightly edited in favour, hopefully, of greater clarity. For more information on Fas consult the SIL PNG Language Resource Site. See for general information on Fas and the Kwomtari phylum language area. Wietze Baron ( Hoogezand, the Netherlands October 2007
