Abstract:

Zulu is a language spoken in the Republic of South Africa by approximately
8,34 million people (according to the 1991 census). Zulu belongs to the
South-Eastern zone of the Bantu language family, a family of languages that
occupies an area south of an ill?defined boundary that stretches from the
Cameroon area on the west coast to more or less the lake Victoria area and
Kenya on the east coast. Languages of this family are found as far south as
the Cape area of the Republic of South Africa.
	
Zulu is now recognized as one of the 11 official languages of the Republic
of South Africa, with its major concentration of speakers found in
KwaZulu/Natal province. It has traditionally been recognized as one of the
languages of the so?called Nguni group, others being languages such as
Xhosa, Swati and Ndebele. In the grammatical sketch on Zulu an overview is
given of the following linguistic aspects:

The morphological structure of the Zulu language is provided with reference
to the various word categories/parts of speech, e.g. attention is given to
basic morphological characteristics such as noun class categorization and
the ensuing system of concordial agreement, phenomena that permeate through
all the languages of this family. Other important areas of linguistic
research are also given attention, e.g. aspects relating to the phenomenom
of grammaticalization, discourse pragmatics and typological issues. An
outline of the sound system of the language is also provided with reference
to the phonetic qualities of the different consonants and vowels. Specific
attention is given to the production of "unusual" sounds such as clicks.
Reference is also made to basic tonal issues in the language. In addition a
phonemic inventory of the language is provided.
