A Grammar of Miya describes a language of the Chadic family spoken in Northern Nigeria. This is the first documentation of Miya aside from word lists. The grammar describes all aspects of the language. Of particular typological interest are the tone system, a "terraced level" system in which tone operates over multi-syllabic domains, and word order, which is VXS in many contexts.
