Abstract:

The main topics covered in this description of the major syntactic
structures of Chichewa, a Bantu language widely spoken in Malawi,
include phonetic and phonological aspects of the language, clause
structure aspects, and interactions between tone and syntactic
structure. Sam Mchombo's analysis is supplemented by observations
about how the study of African languages, specifically Bantu
languages, has contributed to progress in grammatical theory. The text
covers debates about the interaction between syntax and the lexicon,
as well as the contributions of African linguistic structure to the
evaluation of competing grammatical theories.

Lingfield(s): Syntax
			 
Subject Language(s): Chichewa (Language Code: NYJ)

Written In: English (Language Code: ENG)
