    "description": "<p>This paper discusses Sandra Chung&#39;s claim (in the same journal) that Chamorro has the three major word-classes (lexical categories) noun, verb, adjective after all, despite earlier claims that it distinguishes between Class I and Class II words. I note that there are several different ways in which Chamorro major-class words can be classified, and that there is no a priori reason for favouring one over the others. Chung&#39;s argument that Chamorro&#39;s word-classes are like English word-classes thus runs the risk of ethnocentrism. While it is true that Chamorro can be seen to have the same word-classes as English, English could equally well be seen to have the two classes that were earlier posited for Chamorro (Class I and Class II).</p>",
