Title: A Grammar of Kilba Language
Written By: Mohammed Aminu Mu'azu
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in African Linguistics 76
Description:

This book presents a detailed description of Kilba, a language of the
Bata-Marghi sub-group of the Chadic family of the Afro-Asiatic Phylum. The
book describes some linguistic aspects of Kilba. As a preliminary to the
main discussion, geographical location of Kilba land, culture and dialects
of the Language are highlighted. The book then describes the Phonology,
Morphology and Syntax of the Language. On phonology, the book treats the
sound system, Phonological processes and the tonal system of the language.
The section on Morphology treats, in part, nominal and verbal morphology of
the language. On the nominal, the book treats nouns, adjectives, pronouns
and adverbs, while the verbal morphology discusses the derivational and
inflectional aspects of the verbs. Finally, concerning syntax, the book
treats the various constituents that make up the two phrases: nominal and
verbal. The book reveals the nature and restrictions that occur in the
usage of the lexical items in the two phrases. Each of the items that occur
both in the phrases are spelt out and phrase structure tree diagrams of
some of the sentences are drawn and phrase structure rules are also
established in order to show how the constituents are hierarchically related.
