Abstract:

The book is the first grammar description of the newly discovered language
of Zialo, spoken by some 25,000 people in the Republic of Guinea in West
Africa. The language belongs to the South-Western group of the Mande
language family. Before 2010, no grammar, article or vocabulary of Zialo
was ever published.

The book presents a survey of the language according to the contemporary
standards of language descriptions. Phonology, morphonology, tonology,
morphology and syntax are analysed, with a specific focus to the syntactic
structure of the language. The book also gives a brief insight into the
linguistic geography of Zialo, its dialectal diversity, neighbours and
language contacts. The description is supported by over 600 phrasal
examples, all of which are fully glossed according to the Leipzig rules of
glossing. All word or phrase examples throughout the text are fully
tone-marked. The grammar is followed by Appendices including three sample
texts in Zialo with glosses, the 100-item Swadesh list of basic lexicon,
and the Zialo to English and French vocabulary, consisting of over 2,000
entries.

The bibliography list covers about 200 reference papers. The book contains
two maps (of the South-Western Mande languages, and the Zialo language),
three diagrams and over 30 charts.
