A Glossary of Terms for Bantu Verabl Categories,
With special Emphasis on Tense and Aspect

Sarah Rose, Christa Beaudoin-Lietz, Derek Nurse

In recent years the study of verbal categories has become a major
focus of attention for Africanists and Bantuists. This interest has
led to new analyses of Bantu languages, including descriptions of
tense, aspect, modality, and discourse functions. This has resulted in
an enormous growth of terminology for verbal categories, some
traditional, some specific to Bantu, some from modern general
linguistics. Over the years the authors have been struck by the wide
range and disparity of usage in terminology.

This brief glossary provides the general reader and the specialist in
Bantu linguistics alike with definitions of some of the terms most
often encountered in the study of Bantu languages. The authors'
approach is based on an in-depth analysis of several Bantu languages,
examination of terms used for many other Bantu languages, and
consultation of linguistic dictionaries.

The glossary contains over 200 definitions of terms applicable to
verbal constructions, of which 160 are substantive and 40 are
cross-references. Some definitions are short, others are longer, with
an explanation of theoretical issues. Examples are plentiful and drawn
from many Bantu languages, including some as yet unpublished
material. The References will lead the reader to up-to-date
discussions of Bantu and of theoretical issues.

This is a concise, informative and very readable glossary which
promises to be both an indispensable resource tool and a touchstone
for lively discussion.
