Abstract:

Amongst the immense diversity of the languages of Africa one finds the
Bantu languages which number close to a thousand including dialects. Within
the South­eastern zone of the Bantu language family, sub­groups such as the
Sotho and Nguni groups, Tsonga and Venda are distinguished, Northern Sotho
belongs to the Sotho group together with Tswana and Southern Sotho.
Geographically speakers of Northern Sotho are mostly concentrated in the
Northern and North­eastern parts of the Transvaal. There are about 3,5
million mother­tongue speakers.

Typologically Northern Sotho is an agglutinative language. It is
characterised by a system of noun classes and concordial agreement.
Concordance is established by means of prefixal elements. Tone plays an
important role in distinguishing the lexical meaning of words, but is also
used to determine the grammatical character of words.

The present volume presents among others, interesting sociolinguistic data,
salient phonemic and orthographic facts, an outline of the nominal and
verbal morphology, syntactic and discourse related phenomena, as well as
sample texts with interlinear transcription and translation.
