Abstract: Borong (Kosorong) language is a related language of Somba-Siawari in Burum-Mindik. We, the authors of this paper, Soini and Kaija Olkkonen, have written Grammar Essentials and 2 papers for Grammar Sketch for the Somba-Siawari language. This present paper has two purposes: First it is written in a way, that helps our national Borong translators to get acquainted with the basic features of the grammar of the Papuan languages, especially their own language. Secondly, because Borong is a related language of Somba-Siawari, a comparison of a couple of differences has being made. Bigger challenges to tackle are the not-matching, but still corresponding issues between the English and Borong grammars.
