Abstract:

It is now nearly twenty years since the author published, through the
Lovedale Mission Press, an Introductory Kaffir Grammar " - now long out of
print - which led the way in an attempt to deal with the language in a
simplified manner based on analytic treatment. Not long afterwards the Rev.
J. Torrend published an " Outline of Xosa-Kafir Grammar," in which he,
independently, arrived at the same general conclusions regarding the
language as myself, though expressed in a different terminology. These main
principles have since been very generally accepted by subsequent writers on
Kaffir and other Bantu languages.

The present work, which is entirely new, has occupied my leisure time for
several years past. What I have tried to accomplish is thorough first-hand
investigation of the facts of the language, full and orderly exposition of the
different parts of the grammar - Phonology, Accidence, Syntax, and
Derivation - and exhaustive exemplification of forms and usages.

Every effort has been made to present the facts with the utmost possible
clearness to the eye and to the mind. The needs of various classes of
readers have had to be kept in view, and on this account, while an endeavour
has been made to base the treatment on scientific method, the results are
stated in as simple language as the subject permits. Contents: Part I:
Sounds, Part II: Words and Forms, Part III: Sentences, Part IV: Origin and
Forms, Appendices, Vocabulary.

This re-edition has been published as no. 32 in the LINCOM Gramatica

Co., written in English)
