Chapter Summary

The word classes treated in this chapter are: adverbs and intensifiers, the additive conjunction aro 'and', the personal pronouns, the generic pronoun, the ideophones and the interjections. The first section explains the adverbs and intensifiers with the help of a "Table". Intensifiers are used to indicate the intensification of a manner or property. There are three intensifiers. The additive conjunction aro 'and, more' is a linking device that links both clauses and NPs. This is explained in the second section. Ideophones are expressions that "evoke a vivid impression of a sensation"; these are discussed in the third section. There are many interjections in the Atong language expressing a variety of emotions. These are discussed in the fourth section. Proclauses are dealt in the fifth section. All the sections use tables and many examples to make it easy to understand the other word classes of Atong.
