Subject: African Ling: Aspects of the Grammar of Kuku, K.B.Cohen

Aspects of the Grammar of Kuk�

Kevin Bretonnel Cohen, Ohio State University

Kuk� is a previously undescribed southeastern Nilotic language of the
Bari family. It is spoken in southern Sudan and northern Uganda. Kuk�
has a wide variety of verbal affixes. These affixes are involved in a
number of vowel harmony and tone assignment patterns. In this grammar
sketch, particular attention is paid to the qualitative morpheme,
which functions quite differently in Kuk� than in other Nilotic
languages. In Kuk� its distribution, both with respect to the verbs
on which it can appear and the aspects in which it must appear, is
related to a contrast between telicity and atelicity. If the
performance of the verb has a potential end-point, and if the aspect
is completive, then these conditions are marked by the presence of the
qualitative morpheme.
 
The syntax section focuses on problems in the distribution of the
complementizers and in the use of two copula-like elements, one of
which is clearly verbal and the other of which is a particle. The
phonological section of this description is based on traditional
elicitation from a consultant. The morphological and syntactic
sections also draw heavily from texts of various types, ranging from
traditional songs to electronic mail.
