I have a student interested in doing research on the insults that children
direct to one another? Does anyone have any references for this material
that I can pass along?

Message 2: Demonstratives in Zulu or any Nguni/Bantu languages

Subject: Demonstratives in Zulu or any Nguni/Bantu languages

Dear Colleagues:

I'm examining the functions of demonstratives in Zulu and English. A 
lot has been done on English; before I boldly say nothing has been
done in Zulu would anyone help me with some bibliography/references? I
would also appreciate references for studies on demonstratives in any
Nguni or Bantu language.

Thank you.

Audrey
