Title: A Grammar of the Miship Language
Written By: MohammedAminuMu'azu
KatwalPemakIsah
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in African Linguistics 78
Description:

Miship belongs to the West-Chadic sub-group of the Afro-Asiatic phylum,
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
linguistics classifications and provides an overview of the dialects of the
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 the Choamskian’s
method of sentence analysis. Phrase structure tree diagrams are drawn, and
phrase structure rules are established for some of the types of sentences
that occur in the language and the concluding chapter presents the
vocabulary of the language.
