Kiholu is a Bantu tone-language spoken on both sides of the Kwaangu
and the Tuungila rivers by (at that time) c. 7000 people in the Kongo
Republic and c. 12000 in Angola. These provisional notes have been
taken from a Muholu (born c. 1937) in 1957. The first part deals with
phonetics and phonology/tonology; the second part with the
morphology. A table presents the nominal, pronominal and verbal
prefixes. Nominal forms with class pairing 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10,
11/10, 13/12, 14/6; contents of the noun classes and the locatives 16,
17 and 18. Six adjective-stems have been noted and two complex
nominals. Pronominal forms: completive syntagma, substitutive,
possessive, demonstrative, numeral and interrogative. Verbal forms:
present, durative, recent past, interior past, subjunctive, imperative
and negative. As syntax only 56 conversation-sentences are given with
French translation. Lexicon Kiholu - French: (c. 900 items). Lexicon
French - Kiholu: (c. 900 items). Also see the LINCOM webshop: (full text research - direct orders - monthly updates)
