Ndebele 
Claire Bowern and Victoria Lotridge (eds.)
Harvard University

This grammar is a sketch of the essential features of Ndebele grammar.
Ndebele is spoken by approximately 1.5 million people in Zimbabwe and
up to another half million in the Transvaal district of the Republic
of South Africa. It is a member of the Nguni subgroup of Bantu, along
with Xhosa, Zulu and Swati. Data from this sketch were collected from
a speaker of Ndebele during Harvard University's linguistic field
methods course in Spring 2000, taught by Dr Lisa Lavoie. The dialect
described is Zimbabwe Ndebele.

The class wrote the sketch jointly, based on final research papers for
the course. The sketch was then edited into a manuscript and checked for
consistency. Those contributing to the sketch were (besides the main
editors): Emily Alling, Gorm Amand, Luce Aubrey, G�lsat Aygen, Dominika
Baran, Maryanne Cockerill, Ju-Eun Lee, Bekezela Ncube, Balkiz �zt�rk and
Pawel Nowak. The sketch covers the basics of phonology, morphology of
nouns and verbs, concord and noun class membership, the
tense/aspect/mood system and basic syntax, including subordination and
questions. There is a fully glossed text which illustrates many of the
points made in the sketch.

At the time of writing the authors and editors were undergraduate and
graduate students at Harvard University.
