North Sámi: An Essential Grammar is the most up-to-date work on North Sámi grammar to be published in English.

The book provides:

  • a clear and comprehensive overview of modern Sámi grammar including examples drawn from authentic texts of various genres.
  • a systematic order of topics beginning with the alphabet and phonology, continuing with nominal and verbal morphology and syntax, and concluding with more advanced topics such as discourse particles, complex sentences, and word formation.
  • full explanations of the grammatical terminology for the benefit of readers without a background in linguistics.  

Suitable for linguists, as well as independent and classroom-based students, North Sámi: An Essential Grammar is an accessible but thorough introduction to the essential morphology and syntax of modern North Sámi, the largest of the Sámi languages.
