Abstract:

This comprehensive book provides a detailed description of the major
syntactic structures of Chichewa. Assuming no prior knowledge of
current theory, it covers topics such as relative clause and question
formation, interactions between tone and syntactic structure, aspects
of clause structure such as complementation, and phonetics and
phonology. It also provides a detailed account of argument structure,
in which the role of verbal suffixation is examined. Sam Mchombo's
description is supplemented by observations about how the study of
African languages, specifically Bantu languages, has contributed to
progress in grammatical theory, including the debates that have raged
within linguistic theory about the relationship between syntax and the
lexicon, and the contributions of African linguistic structure to the
evaluation of competing grammatical theories. Clearly organised and
accessible, The Syntax of Chichewa will be an invaluable resource for
students interested in linguistic theory and how it can be applied to
a specific language.
