Download e-book for kindle: A Grammar of Wandala by Zygmunt Frajzyngier

By Zygmunt Frajzyngier

Wandala is a hitherto undescribed crucial Chadic language spoken in Northern Cameroon and Northeastern Nigeria. The Grammar of Wandala describes, in a non-aprioristic method, phonology, morphology, syntax, and all sensible domain names grammaticalized within the language. The grammatical constitution of Wandala is sort of diverse from the constitution of alternative Chadic languages defined so far in either the formal potential and the services which were grammaticalized. The grammar offers proofs for the postulated hypotheses touching on varieties and services. The grammar is written in a method available to linguists operating inside of diverse theoretical frameworks.

The phonology is characterised via a wealthy consonantal approach, a 3 vowel procedure, and a tone method. The language has plentiful vowel insertion ideas and a vowel concord procedure. Vowel deletion marks phrase-internal place, and vowel-insertion marks phrase-final place. the 2 principles let the parsing of the clause into components. The language has 3 kinds of reduplication of verbs, of which code aspectual and modal differences. The adverse paradigms of verbs vary from affirmative paradigms within the coding of subject.

The pronominal affixes and huge process of verbal extensions code the grammatical and semantic family members in the clause. Wandala has strange clausal constitution, in that during a pragmatically impartial verbal clause, there's just one nominal argument, both the topic or the article. those arguments can persist with quite a few materials. The grammatical position of that argument is coded by way of inflectional markers at the verb and so much curiously, on no matter what lexical or grammatical morpheme precedes the constituent. The markers of grammatical family further to verbs are varied for various sessions of verbs.
