Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Handbuch der Kambasprache
Written By: Ernst Brutzer
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica
Description:

Die Kamba, zur Familie der Bantu gehörig, geben als ihren Ursitz das Gebiet
von Yulu jenseits des Athiflusses an. Die „echten“ Kamba, die Ngove, wie sie
sagen, sind von dort nach Kitwi und dem Berge Mutomo gekommen. Während
einer Hungersnot aber, die 1836 in Ukamba wütete, zogen viele dieser Kamba
an die Küste. Diese Küstenkamba, deren Zahl sich auf etwa 3500 beläuft,
isolierten sich streng von den umliegenden Völkern.

Diesem Handbuch liegt nun das Kamba der Ngove zugrunde. Die in vorliegender
Arbeit verwendete Orthographie gründet sich auf P. Meinhof’s „Grundriß der
Lautlehre der Bantusprachen“ und wurde mit einigen für die Praxis erforderlichen
Änderungen von der Konferenz der ev.-luth. Kambamissionare angenommen
(aus dem Vorwort). Inhalt: Lautlehre (u.a. Assimilationsgesetze),
Substantivklassen, Pronomina, Verbum mit einem alphabetischen
Verbverzeichnis (mit Angabe des Präsensstammes, Perf. Simpl., stammes,
etc), Texte (Re-edition; originally published 1906 in Berlin; written in German)
