Title: Manuel de Langue Kinyarwanda, comprenant la Grammaire et un choix de contes et de proverbe
Written By: Eugène Hurel
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 07

Le kinyarwanda (parlé par un peu plus d'un million d'individus (les
Batutsi. les Bahutu, les Batwa) appartient a la grande famille de langues
que les linguistes désignent sous le nom de langues bantu. C'est donc une
langue à classes ou à agglutination initiale. Chaque mot comprend le
radical et un ou plusieurs affixes. Ce sont ces affixes qui servent à
caractériser le genre ou la classe et le nombre du substantif, à marquer
l'accord de celui-ci avec les autres parties du discours, à distinguer les
temps, les modes des verbes, à désigner dans la conjugaison les pronoms
sujets ou régimes. Les divers affixes et le radical sont nettement
distincts, quoique intimement soudés ensemble (préface, p.1).

Table de matières: Préface, le substantif, la voyelle euphonique, tableau
des préfixes ; l'adjectif, les pronomes, le verbe, l'adverbe, les
prépositions, les conjunctions, les interjections, l'euphonie, contes,

In his grammatical sketch Eugène Hurel mainly focuses on nominal and
verbal morphology of Kinyarwanda, a Bantu language of Rwanda. This
re-edition has been published as no. 07 in the LINCOM Gramatica (LINGram)
series (originally published 1911, written in French).
