Abstract: This monograph presents a description of the phonology, morphology, and syntax of Hanga Hundi, a Papuan language of the East Sepik province of Papua New Guinea. While the primary purpose o f the monograph is to provide a description o f the language rather than an evaluation o f theoretical issues, the description should nonetheless provide a researcher with some interesting information for cross linguistic comparisoa The primary areas of interest are the vowel phonemes, the switch reference system of suffixes, and the case marking system that clarifies the case role of noun phrase clause constituents. The phonology is described using Underspecification Theory and a syllable template. The syntax is described primarily in an X-bar framework but the verbal description should make it accessible to a linguist from any theoretical background.In addition, several texts have been included in the description of Hanga Hundi's discourse structure.
