Abstract:

This reference grammar of Gidar, spoken in the Northern Province of
Cameroon by some 40.000 people, contains hypotheses on the forms and
functions of its linguistic structures and supporting argumentation and
evidence. The language belongs to the Central Branch of Chadic languages,
but its phonology, morphology, and syntax differ significantly from those
of related Chadic languages and include rare or hitherto unobserved
phenomena. Gidar has fronting and rounding long distance vowel
assimilations that operate to the left and the right of the triggering
vowel. Some prepositional phrases are incorporated within the verbal piece
framed by aspectual markers. There are two tense and aspectual systems. The
focus on the verb requires the formation of a special phrase whose head is
an infinitive form of the verb with its object.
