Instead, these pressures are low-ranked in Bantu and, when present, have a limited effect on the overall system, as we have seen. 27 That Bantu suffix ordering is largely templatic is also supported by phonological conditions which enter into the realization of suffix combinations.

Covering both syntax (the structure of phrases and sentences) and morphology (the structure of words), it equips them with the tools and methods needed to analyze grammatical patterns in any : Paul R.

Kroeger. The similarity between dispersed Bantu languages had been observed as early as in the 17th century. The term Bantu as a name or the group was coined (as Bâ-ntu) by Wilhelm Bleek in orand popularised in his Comparative Grammar of The name was coined to represent the word for 'people' in loosely reconstructed Proto-Bantu, from the plural noun class Ethnicity: Bantu peoples.

The ka-construction in Taiwan Southern Min is well-known for its polysemy. This study argues that with evidence from extra-argumentality, ka-NP position, thematic relationship, passivization, over-generalization, and dialectal difference, ka should at least be categorized into three different types, i.e., light verb, applicative, and preposition, instead of a uniform one.

He is the author of The Syntax of Chichewa, Cambridge University Press (), editor of Theoretical Aspects of Bantu Grammar, CSLI, Stanford (), and was guest editor of the journal Linguistic Analysis for a special issue on African Linguistics (). Ditransitive Constructions, p. 1 In a typical ditransitive construction, there are two arguments that are “object”-like.

On this handout, we will refer to these as the T and G arguments. Nevertheless, Bantu syntax is a growing field with, as we shall see, a number of phenomena that can influence theoretical debate. Although one of the main points of interest is the fascinating variation in the family, a couple of generalizations can be made with respect to Bantu morphosyntax.
