Abstract:
This is a description of the grammar, and more especially the syntax, of the Gela language. Gela is a Melanesian language of the Central Solomon Islands. Though there are at least eighteen distinct Melanesian languages. in the Solomon Islands, few of them have bean subjected to systematic linguistic analysis. The structure of Gala sentences is here described in terms of simple sentences and combinations of them into complex sentences. The basic, constituents of simple sentences are described in Part One. Part Two deals with various expansions and elaborations of there basic constituents. Part Three considers ways in which the resulting simple sentences combine to form complex sentences.
