Title: A Grammar of Goemai
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110238280-1
Series Title: Mouton Grammar Library [MGL] 51
Description:

This is the first description of Goemai, a West Chadic language of Nigeria.
Goemai is spoken in a language contact area, and this contact has shaped
Goemai grammar to the extent that it can be considered a fairly untypical
Chadic language. The grammar presents the structure of the present-day
language, relates it to its diachronic sources, and adds a semantic perspective
to the description.
