Abstract:

Miship belongs to the West-Chadic sub-group of the Afro-Asiatic phylum and
is spoken by 17,000 people in Plateau State, Nigeria. This book consists of
five chapters. The first part looks at the historical and ethnic
backgrounds of the speakers of the Miship language, discusses its
linguistic classifications and provides an overview of the dialects of the
Miship language. The second part deals with the sound system, which
includes descriptions of the consonants, vowels sounds, other related
phonological aspects, as well as the tonal system of the language. The
third section discusses the nominal and verbal morphology of the language,
covering such diverse dimensions, as the conventional nouns, verbs,
inflections and other grammatical features, as well as ideophones and its
structures. The fourth chapter treats syntactic features of the language
using Chomsky's method of sentence analysis. Phrase structure tree
diagrams are drawn, and phrase structure rules are established for some of
the sentence types that occur in the language. The concluding chapter
presents the vocabulary of the language.

The authors, Mohammed Aminu Mu'azu and Katwal Pemak Isah studied General
Linguistics in the Department of Languages and Linguistics, University of
Maiduguri-Nigeria. This book was completed during Mohammed Aminu Mu'azu's
tenure as a lecturer in the Department of African Studies (Afrikanistik
11), University of Bayreuth, Germany (2008-2010).
