Abstract: This thesis presents the description of Moken, a Malayo-Polynesian language, on its phonology and syntax. The data were obtained only from the Moken found at Rawai, Rawai District, Amphur Muang, Phuket Province. The phonological part describes the Intonation Group, the Stress Group or the Phonological Word, the Syllable and the Phoneme. The syntactical part describes the language on word, phrase, clause and sentence level including some description on paragraph and discourse levels. A comparative study on semantics of the Moken from the Moken in various settlements is suggested for further study. The Moken - English word list is provided as the first aid.
