Title: A Handbook of the Pedi-Transvaal Suto Language
Written By: G. Beyer
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 151

Re-edition: Originally published by Morija Sesuto Book Depot, 1920. Pedi is the language of the Bapedi, one of the chief Sotho (Suto) tribes in Transvaal. In contradiction to the Southern Suto or Suto proper, as spoken in Basutoland, Pedi is called the Northern or Transvaal Suto while spoken and understood with more or less dialectic variations nearly over the whole of the Transvaal, especially the Eastern and Northern parts. The present little book will try to be a practical guide in this way, not only to Bantu students, but also traders, employers, government officials and natives who wish to understand and like their own tongue better (adapted from the preface). Contents: Orthography, Accentuation, Intonation, Euphonic Changes, The noun, The Pronoun, The Numerals, The Verb (Present I, II, Imperfect, Historical Aorist, Perfect, Future, Prohibitive, Potential, Negative), Adverbs, Conjunctions.
