Title: Notes grammaticales et Lexique du Kiholu
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in African Linguistics 58

Kiholu is a Bantu tone-language spoken on both sides of the Kwaangu and
the Tuungila rivers by (at that time) c. 7000 people in the Kongo Republic
and c. 12000 in Angola. These provisional notes have been taken from a
Muholu (born c. 1937) in 1957.

The first part deals with phonetics and phonology/tonology; the second part
with the morphology. A table presents the nominal, pronominal and verbal
Nominal forms with class pairing 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/10, 13/12,
14/6; contents of the noun classes and the locatives 16, 17 and 18. Six
adjective-stems have been noted and two complex nominals.

Pronominal forms: completive syntagma, substitutive, possessive,
demonstrative, numeral and interrogative.

Verbal forms: present, durative, recent past, interior past, subjunctive,
imperative and negative.

As syntax only 56 conversation-sentences are given with French translation.
