The present study is meant to form a supplement to E. Brutzer’s “Handbuch der
Kambasprache” (re-edited as no. 118 in the LINCOM Gramatica series), chiefly
such things being treated which are not mentioned by Brutzer. Thus, especially
section II consists of isolated cases from the accidence. It should also be
pointed out that this study is based on a different dialect than that on which
Brutzer’s book is based. I was in Ukamba (British East Africa) in 1911 and
1912, to work with Kamba natives. The Kamba people is one of the largest
people in British East Africa, in their land Ukamba the population amounts to
some 230,000 persons (adapted from the introduction).
