Abstract:

Aspects of the Grammar of Kukú

Kevin Bretonnel Cohen
Ohio State University

Kukú is a previously undescribed southeastern Nilotic language of the Bari
family. It is spoken in southern Sudan and northern Uganda. Kukú has a
wide variety of verbal affixes. These affixes are involved in a number of
vowel harmony and tone assignment patterns. In this grammar sketch,
particular attention is paid to the qualitative morpheme, which functions
quite differently in Kukú than in other Nilotic languages. In Kukú its
distribution, both with respect to the verbs on which it can appear and
the aspects in which it must appear, is related to a contrast between
telicity and atelicity. If the performance of the verb has a potential
end-point, and if the aspect is completive, then these conditions are
marked by the presence of the qualitative morpheme.
The syntax section focuses on problems in the distribution of the
complementizers and in the use of two copula-like elements, one of which
is clearly verbal and the other of which is a particle. The phonological
section of this description is based on traditional elicitation from a
consultant. The morphological and syntactic sections also draw heavily
from texts of various types, ranging from traditional songs to electronic
mail.
