Language and its Structures — Appendices

About the Book

These appendices contain an overview of basic structures of the Nahuatl language, a glossary of technical terms used in linguistics generally and Cognitive Grammar in particular, catalogs of diagramming and typeface conventions, abbreviations and and other things. The glossary of technical terms and the description of Nahuatl may be of some use quite apart from the rest of the book.

This book is a translation into English of Las estructuras del lenguaje: Apéndices which was originally written in Spanish.
