Linking clauses in Manambu involves a variety of means, including clause chaining, speech reports, conjoined dependent clauses, nominalizations, connectives, and apposition. Many clause linking techniques are polysemous; and some can be disambiguated if necessary. I start with an outline of typological features of Manambu, focusing on the parameters relevant for clause linking. I then turn to the clause linking techniques and their correlations with semantic types. The last section contains a brief summary.
