Charles Grimes

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    This paper revisits the issue with new data and new analyses, picking up on several features not yet described by others. It approaches the question by comparing entire subsystems of the two languages. In addition to looking at the complex phonologies and the lexicon, it explores a number of grammatical subsystems, including syntax and some very interesting typological features. It also examines more closely the issue of intelligibility.
