The Bardi language is currently spoken by fewer than 10 people. The language is a member of the Nyulnyulan family, a small non-Pama-Nyungan family in northwest Australia. This book is a reference grammar of the language. The 16 chapters include information on phonetics and phonology, nominal and verbal morphology, and syntax, as well as an ethnographic sketch of traditional life. A selection of texts is also included. It is the first published full study of a Nyulnyulan language.

Discourse and Grammar in Australian Languages is the first major survey to address the issue of the effects of information packaging on Australian languages, widely known for nonconfigurationality. The papers are based on individual fieldwork and describe a wide range of Australian languages of different types, ranging from the polysynthetic languages of Arnhem Land and the Kimberley to the classical types represented by Walpiri. Topics covered include the pragmatics of information exchange, the interaction of noun class marking with polarity and referentiality, the effects of specificity on argument indexing, the discourse uses of the ergative case, the contribution of pronouns to NP reference, the interaction of tense and aspect clitics with information structure, clause-initial position, and discourse and grammar in Australian languages. The volume will appeal to scholars interested in discourse, typology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics.

This book uniquely blends poetry, drama, and scholarship into a verse play that interprets the Italian Renaissance in the light of scholarship. It is historical poetic drama in the tradition of T.S. Eliot and Christopher Fry. Lorenzo de'Medici is an original verse play about the original Bonfire of the Vanities, the struggle between Lorenzo de'Medici (The Magnificent) and Savonarola in fifteenth-century Italy. The events are historically true, and the rhymed songs are the author's translations of Renaissance Latin and Italian lyrics.
