  Object Verb Subject - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
OVS languages are a type of languages when classifying languages according to the dominant sequence of these constituents.
Some languages, such as Swedish, which normally lack any extensive case marking, allow such structures when pronouns (which are marked for case) are involved.
This sequence was chosen for the artificial language Klingon, a language spoken by the extraterrestrial Klingon race in the fictional universe of the Star Trek series, in order to make the language sound deliberately alien and counterintuitive to the human mind.

The rate and extend in which the languages are at risk of fading away is by far much higher than what is thought of for the biological species.
Language shift and maintenance are often much more dynamic and complex phenomena, including several scenarios that simultaneously correspond to different stages, as is the case of Mexicano.
These language profiles are based on the passive knowledge of at best a handful of speakers, most of them only remembers, quasi or even pseudo speakers of the languages (for these definitions see Flores Farfán 1998, 1999, 2001).

 Syntax for Artificial Languages
This essay is aimed at budding language designers who would like to learn something about syntax in general, and about some of the syntactic variability that exists among the world's many natural languages.
Determining these patterns is not always that simple, because many languages are inflected in such a way that they have a great deal of freedom in ordering their words.
In fact, when languages are found that appear to contradict such orderings, it is usually the case that they are undergoing a transition from one pattern to another and haven't yet "settled down".

WICK R. Wick R. Miller, a widely respected anthropological linguist and pioneer in language acquisition studies, was born in the small town of San Ysidro, New Mexico, where his father ran a trading post between the Jemez and Zia reservations.
He felt a strong debt to the Native American peoples whose languages and cultures he studied as well as to their communities, as is amply shown by his constant efforts to repay this debt.
The Wick R. Miller Memorial Scholarship honors both Professor Miller and his commitment to the study and documentation of Native American languages and cultures by awarding to a Native American student at the University of Utah a stipend in support of that student’s education.

[This comprehensive survey of the structure, history, and ethno- and sociolinguistics of the indigenous languages of the New World is designed as a textbook for an upper-level course in American Indian languages.
This is one of those textbooks that is far more than a classroom aid; it is the summation of two lifetimes of focused research and teaching (one of them cut tragically short with Miller’s death in a road accident in 1994).
But there is so much in it, so lucidly explained, that it could serve equally well as the organizing text for the more general courses on the anthropology of language that we more frequently give.

The country's estimated 8.7 million remaining Indians speak 59 languages and are scattered across the country, living both in and near cities and, like the mountain-dwelling Guarijios and Tarahumaras, in relative isolation from the greater mestizo population.
Cultures disappearing Many Mexican anthropologists believe they are witnessing the disappearance of these distinct cultures as they lose their languages, the force that separates a tribe from other Mexicans and unites a tribe as a people.

They speak a language that is related to those spoken by their neighbors in northern Mexico--the Guarijío, Tepehuan, Pima, Yaqui, and Mayo--as well as more distant Indian societies like the Comanche, Hopi, and Aztec, all of which belong to the Uto-Aztecan language family.
From the evidence that is available, it appears that the Indians emphasized language as the principal marker of ethnicity, further distinguishing among speakers of the same language on the basis of locality.
I believe that the key lies in differences in the degree to which the languages spoken by the Varohíos and Guazapares were similar to the Tarahumara language spoken by immigrants into their communities.

Subject Object Verb (SOV) is a term used in linguistic typology to state the general order of words in a language's sentences: "Sam oranges ate".The SOV type is the most common type found in natural languages.
SOV languages tend to have the adjectives before nouns, to use postpositions rather than prepositions, to place relativeclauses before the nouns to which they refer, and to place auxiliary verbs after the action verb.
SOV languages also seem to exhibit a tendency towardsusing a Time-Manner-Place ordering of prepositional phrases.

Each volume contains a section on phonology, a short narrative text and samples of conversation (with translation and morphemic analysis), a long section on morphosyntax (“sintaxis”), and a compact lexicon of 500 or so items.
The morphosyntactic section is not a grammatical sketch, but rather 594 Spanish sentences or utterance sequences with their native language equivalents, glossed and morphemically analyzed.
