Abstract and Keywords
As pointed out in several chapters in this volume, the preparation of a grammar is considered a centrally important component of adequate language documentation. Our goal in this chapter is to present a set of best-practice guidelines for grammar writing with specific recommendations. These recommendations are based on surveys of a number of exemplary grammars, questionnaires aimed at aiding fieldwork and guiding grammar preparation, and various publications that make recommendations for grammar writing.
