Abstract:

This collection of papers offers a description of voice through verbal
extensions in nine Bantu languages spoken in Cameroon, Gabon, the
Democratic Republic of Congo, and Rwanda. The languages in question
are Bafut, La'mnso, Kom, Isangu, Ngiemboon, Ngwe, Havu, Duala and
Kinyarwanda. For all papers data were collected on the basis of the
same questionnaire and the same theorical basis.
	
Most work on this subject deals with morphologic aspect of the voice
in Bantu languages ; this volume attempts to include a morphosyntactic
issue whereby voice is viewed broadly as comprising all the
morphological procedures which, operating on the level of the verb,
are in relation to the semantic roles attributed to subject and
object. The study of voice here presupposes a consideration of the
systematic relationships which can exist in a language, between verb
morphology and the semantic roles attributed to subject and
object. (for more information, please see the LINCOM webshop :
