Written By: Armindo Ngunga
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=1575862476
Series Title: Stanford Monographs in African Languages
Description:

This book describes and analyzes the lexical phonology and morphology of
the verb stem in Ciyao, a Bantu language spoken in Southern Malawi,
Northwestern Mozambique, and Southern Tanzania. This is the most complete
and authoritative treatment to date of the complex morphophonemics of the
Ciyao verb, including the stem and derivational and inflexional endings. Dr
Ngunga’s monograph also contributes significantly to the linguistic
documentation of Ciyao by providing an extraordinary collection of examples
and two appendices listing nearly 3000 Ciyao verbs.
