A reference grammar which covers the essential points of Polish
phonology, morphology, and syntax. Written to be usable by the
general reader, not just the linguistics professional. Phonological
information is presented from a combined phonogical and orthographical
perspective, in order to introduce the Polish spelling system and its
phonological values within a single chapter. Includes Polish minimal
pairs and comparisons to English. Morphophonemic alternations are then
set up, followed by individual sections on nominal, pronominal,
adjectival, and verbal morphology. Verbal morphology is organized on
the basis of a new application of the Jakobsonian one-stem
system. Individual sections deal with specific semantic topics
unfamiliar to English speakers, including verbal aspect, motion verbs,
and numerals. The syntax section deals with general descriptive
problems, but should also be of interest to more sophisticated
users. Topics covered include issues of case and government, the use
of pronominal clitics, the formation of questions and other sentence
types, verbal agreement patterns, and verbal categories such as voice,
mood, and aspect.
