Chapter Summary

This appendix section presents the Anong lexicon. The lexicon at the end of Sun's grammar consists of only the lexical items typically found at the end of all the grammars in that series. This lexicon contains all the Anong vocabulary in Sun's original lexicon, in Sun's various articles on Anong, and in all the published and unpublished wordlists and articles we know of. Two features of this lexicon merit a comment. First, forms sometimes occur in several places, depending upon how they are translated. Second, both words and phrases have been included. Numerous entries are phrasal; of these some appear compositional, that is, the meaning can be predicted from some of meanings of the parts; others are clearly not compositional, that is, the meaning of the whole cannot be predicted from the sum of the meanings of the parts; and, of course, for many, more would have to be known.

Keywords: Anong lexicon; Sun's grammar
