By Sari Pietikäinen, FinlandAlexandra Jaffe, Long BeachHelen Kelly-Holmes, and Nikolas Coupland

Title: The Syntax of Chichewa
Written By: Sam A. Mchombo
URL: http://www.cup.org
Series Title: Cambridge Syntax of Guides
Description:

The main topics covered in this description of the major syntactic
structures of Chichewa, a Bantu language widely spoken in Malawi, include
phonetic and phonological aspects of the language, clause structure
aspects, and interactions between tone and syntactic structure. Sam
Mchombo's analysis is supplemented by observations about how the study of
African languages, specifically Bantu languages, has contributed to
progress in grammatical theory. The text covers debates about the
interaction between syntax and the lexicon, as well as the contributions of
African linguistic structure to the evaluation of competing grammatical
theories.
