Abstract: This thesis provides a grammatical sketch of Yao'an Lolo, a language of Yunnan, China. It was motivated by a deep desire to communicate effectively with the Lolo people who live among the mountains of Mayou in the prefecture of Chuxiong. The thesis focuses on explicating word classes, phrases, simple and complex clauses, sentences, and verb sequences. Special attention is given to 1) describing word formation processes, including reduplication processes, 2) explicating deictics, locative words, complex (elaborate) expressions, and certain particles, 3) explaining the structure of the noun phrase and the verb complex, 4) delineating causative and existential constructions, and 5) explaining verb serializations.
