Abstract: Satawalese, a Chuukic language spoken by approximately 700 people inMicronesia, is a member of a dialect continuum of approximately 17 related speech varieties stretching 2100 kilometers across the Western Pacific. This sketch grammar is intended as a beginning effort to establish some basic facts aboutthis language. This work is intended for linguists interested in Micronesian language data, for non-linguists who need basic information about the language, and for native speakers as a foundation on which to build a comprehensive grammar of their language. More information on Satawalese may help linguists better understand the nature of language. The thesis contains a comprehensive reference bibliography to previous work on Chuukic languages in which Satawalese was referenced in some way.
