Abstract [en]

This master's thesis is a sketch grammar of the Austronesian North Tanna language of Vanuatu. The analysis is based on translations of a North Tanna and English version of the New Testament. This work is also an evaluation and experiment of using Bible translation as a primary source for investigating the grammatical features of a language. The result is an overview of the basic areas of the grammar of North Tanna, such as over all morphology with certain focus on verbal affixation, and some general observations on syntactical features such as valency, clause linking and subordination. There is no phonological analysis since the used data is in written form. The sketch is a base which can be used for further research to either study more of the grammar of North Tanna, or to do comparative work to other languages.
