Abstract:
			
L'ouvrage d�crit le fonctionnement des syst�mes phonologique et
morpho-syntaxique du mono, l'un des nombreux parlers du Nord-Ouest du
Congo (R.D.) qui font partie du groupe linguistique banda. La
description est men�e dans la perspective structuraliste et s'inspire
des travaux de Claire Gr�goire et de ceux de D. Creissels; plus
particuli�rement de D. Creissels en ce qui concerne la syntaxe. La
phonologie est entendue au sens g�n�rativiste du terme. Elle inclut
deux niveaux de description traditionnellement consid�r�s comme deux
composantes grammaticales autonomes : l'�tude de la pertinence des
�l�ments phoniques et l'�tude des alternances entre phon�mes ou
ton�mes. La morpho-syntaxe est abord�e selon la d�marche qui consiste,
dans un premier temps, � d�limiter et identifier les mots ou les
cat�gories grammaticales � partir de phrases syntaxiquement achev�es
et pr�alablement d�finies. La structure morphologique des unit�s
d�limit�es et identifi�es est d�crite dans un deuxi�me temps. Deux
cat�gories grammaticales majeures sont distingu�es : le nom et le
verbe. La notion grammaticale de nom provient de l'existence d'unit�s,
les noms propres de personnes, qui pr�alablement � toute structuration
linguistique, r�f�rent � des individus. La notion de verbe d�coule,
elle, de la conception morpho-syntaxique de pr�dicat. Deux annexes
terminent l'�tude. La premi�re pr�sente un texte qui permet de
v�rifier les r�gles formul�es. La seconde est constitu�e d'un
lexique. (Also see the LINCOM webshop: lincom:at)

Abstract:

Mbalanhu is a Wambo dialect, assigned to Guthrie's R.20, and spoken by
approximately 50320 people in Central Northern Namibia. Apart from a
limited number of articles by the same author, no linguistic data on
the structure of Mbalanhu is available.
	
The sketch commences with a section on phonology. This is followed by
a description of noun classes and nominal suffixes in the next section
which also contains a treatise of the derivation and structure of
several concords (e.g subject, object, possessive), and nominal
qualifiers. The third section focuses on verbal conjugation in the
dialect, while the final section deals with syntax. The formal
grammatical description is a Mbalanhu narrative text accompanied by an
interlinear transcription and English translation. This compact sketch
incorporates several tables with data, and an abundance of
examples. It should form a welcome addition to linguistic material on
the R.20 languages/dialects, which, due to a situation of prolonged
military conflict in Southern Angola and Northern Namibia, have been
inadequately studied to date. 2nd printing. (also see the LINCOM
webshop: lincom.at).
