Abstract:

Petr Zima (ed.) in cooperation with Norbert Cyffer, M.Holubov√°, Herrmann
Jungraithmayr, Rudolf Leger, Henning Schreiber, Anne Storch, Ullrike Zoch

This volume brings the results of international research, the roots of
which were already laid in the volume, published as No 47 of Lincom Studies
in African Linguistics (Areal and Genetic Factors in Language
Classification and Description: Africa South of the Sahara), some time ago.

More recently, a preliminary questionnaire regarding further research in
the areal distribution of TAM paradigms and functions was proposed on p. 10
of the volume Sprachbund in the West African Sahel , (published in Paris by
Bernard Caron and Petr Zima, Eds., 2006). Several related non-verbal
criteria suggested to complement the original questionnaire were added to
the list since 2007, within the framework of the currently running Czech
Science Foundation Project No 405/07/0277, and discussed at an
international workshop organised in cooperation with the Prague Linguistic
Circle in October, 2008. Data from languages of differing genetic origins
spoken West of Lake Chad, be they such sociolinguistically important
languages as Kanuri, Hausa, Fula, Songhay, etc., or be they
sociolinguistically minor languages from the Chadic, Mande or Niger-Congo
genetic contexts, served for attempts at a theoretical generalisation.
