Hindi Morphology
SHALIGRAM SHUKLA, Georgetown University

Hindi is a modern Indo-European language spoken as either a first or
second language by almost a half billion people in India, as well as
other parts of Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, and Oceania.

This book on Hindi morphology complements the author's earlier book,
Hindi Phonology (Lincom Studies in Indo-European Linguistics 12).  It
describes one of the most fundamental units of Hindi structure: the
word, its internal structure, and the interrelationship among words.
Like the book on phonology, this book on morphology is also
comprehensive and detailed. The author has sought simplicity in the
presentation, and, for the sake of clarity, facts and their analyses
are often repeated with abundant examples.  Concepts and technical
terms, traditional and current alike are explained for the reader.
For the convenience of those familiar with the Devanagari script, the
examples are transcribed both in a modified IPA (International
Phonetic Alphabet) and in the Devanagari.

Starting with the introductory chapter, which briefly introduces the
language and the principles of morphology, the book continues with
chapters focusing on Hindi inflection, derivation, compounding,
reduplication, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, particles,
postpositions, and idioms.

Subject:  African Languages: Chichewa by Bentley & Kulemeka

Chichewa
MAYRENE BENTLEY & ANDREW KULEMEKA
Northeastern State University, University of Dar es Salaam

Chichewa is an eastern Bantu language spoken in Malawi, primarily in
the Kasungu, Dowa, and Lilongwe districts.  It is also known as Nyanja
because of its ethnic and linguistic ties with the Nyanja people.
Typical of Bantu languages, Chichewa is tonal with a CV syllable
structure, five vowels, and approximately forty consonant sounds. It
has an extensive noun class system distinguished by noun prefixes with
an accompanying concord system.  Its verbal system marks tense and
aspect by infixes, tone, and auxiliaries.  The passive, stative,
causative, reciprocal, and applicative are verbal suffixes.
Wh-questions are clefts and relative clauses are marked either by
relative pronouns or tones.  In recent years, Chichewa has been a rich
source of study syntactically for its use of locatives,
morphologically for its ideophones, and phonologically for its prosody
and phrase structure.
