About the grammar

This grammar is the result of the PhD Project "An Electronic Reference Grammar of Abesabesi" by Jonas Lau. It is supposed to be a case study on how reference grammars can be digitized and therefore only contains exemplary sections of the Abesabesi sketch grammar. The full sketch grammar is part of the PhD thesis "An Electronic Reference Grammar of Abesabesi".
