Title: Temne Phonology and Morphology
Written By: M. Sorie Yillah
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in African Linguistics 83
Description:

Temne is a southern West Atlantic language which is spoken in the Northern
Province of Sierra Leone. The aim of this study is primarily descriptive: to
provide a systematic account of the sounds and forms of the language.

Chapter 1 presents a general introduction to the segmental phonology of
Temne.

Chapter 2 examines the morphophonology of the specifier system of the noun
phrase and provides a new classification of the singular / plural, definite /
indefinite pairings.

In Chapter 3, the pronominal system and in Chapter 4, Numerals,
Prepositions, and Adverbials are discussed.

In Chapter 5 the verbal complex is examined. Although this study does not
contain an explicit tonology chapter, the author deals with tone rules
throughout whenever they shed light on phonological or morphological
processes, e.g., the reattachment of the tones of deleted segments. The tone
is always marked.
