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.

Title: Étude sur le Dialecte Berbère des Ntifa. Grammaire – Textes
Written By: Émile Laoust
Series Title: LINCOM Orientalia 66

La tribu des Ntifa, dont ce travail étudie le parler, tient, sur les cartes, une partie importante de l’angle largement ouvert vers l’Ocean, que forment le Grand et le Moyen-Atlas à leur point de suture encore mal connu. Leurs voisins immédiats sont berbères, sauf les Beni-Mousa et les Sraghna qui sont arabes, ou plus exactement, des berbères arabisés. Ces derniers ont profondément modifié le genre de vie at la langue des Ntifa. Notre mémoire comprend une partie grammaticale et des textes. Dans la partie phonétique, nous avons abordé, avec plus de témérité que de science, quelces chapitres généralement laissés dans l’ombre dans la plupart des monographies dialectales tels que la structure syllabique et l’accentuation. Les textes ont été traduits aussi littéralement que possible. Leur choix a porté sur les genres les plus divers : Contes, légendes, fables, dialogue, textes d’ethnographie. Contents : Phonétique (Consonantisme, Vocalisme, structure syllabique), Morphologie, Syntaxe [Nom, Verbe(Modes, Temps, Verbes du type Sker, amz, läl, af, griul, etc, forme d’habitude, Verbes inchoatifs)], Pronom, Numération, De lìdée qualificative, Mots invariables, Textes en dialecte des Ntifa.
