This book is intended as an overview and reference grammar of the
modern Faroese language. It covers the relationship between Faroese
orthography and phonetics, phonology, inflectional morphology,
derivational morphology, syntax, dialects, andthe history of the
Faroese language. It also contains extensive bibliographical
references, both after each chapter and at the end of the book, and is
thus more comprehensive than any previously written grammar of

Since the book is intended for a wide readership, it presupposes very
little knowledge of theoretical linguistics. It is basically a
descriptive grammar which can be read by anyone who isfamiliar with
traditional grammatical concepts.
