Some aspects of the grammar of Zina Kotoko

BODIL KAPPEL SCHMIDT, DAVID ODDEN, AND ANDERS HOLMBERG

This volume contains articles on aspects of phonology, morphology, and
syntax of Zina Kotoko, a Chadic language of far northern Cameroon. The
introduction presents an overview of the language, providing
background information for the articles. David Odden describes verbal
tone, which involves phonological interaction between an underlying
'melody' for each tense-aspect and the presence of depressor
consonants in the stem. Berit-Anne Bals and Helene Norgaard
Andreassen examine reduplication in progressive verbs and show that
there are two different reduplicative constituents, whose selection
depend on the presence of 'infixed' object pronouns.

Mark Andrew de Vos gives an overview of noun morphology with special
attention to plural formation and focus constructions. Girma A. Demeke
analyzes the complex system of definiteness and agreement in DPs and
shows how agreement works with different classes of nominal modifiers.
Florin Oprina gives an overview of VP syntax, analyzing relations
between particular verb forms and objects constructions, negation, and
aspect. Bodil Kappel Schmidt describes the tense/aspect system with
an analysis of aspectual forms as complex, complementary to 'pure'
tense forms. Anders Holmberg gives a description and analysis of
prepositions and PPs as complex constructions, consisting of a Relator
with a Place complement. The Lexicon contains appr. 500 Zina Kotoko
items.
