Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Phonology and Morphology of the Ciyao Verb
Written By: Armindo Ngunga
Series Title: Stanford Monographs in African Languages

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.
