Abstract:

Theoretical Issues in the Grammar of Kikamba: A Bantu Language

Angelina Nduku Kioko

This study describes some key aspects of Kikamba grammar in the context of
advances in theoretical linguistics. As a preliminary to the main
discussion, the phonology, morphology and syntax of the language are
outlined in chapter 2. The book then describes in detail the agreement
system, chapter 3; the pronominal system, chapter 4; the passive
construction, chapter 5; and the applicative construction, chapter 6; in
the light of theoretical literature falling within the Government and
Binding, Relational Grammar and Lexical Functional Grammar.

The application of the tenets of these theories to the description of the
Kikamba data leaves some varieties of structures unaccounted for. In
particular it is argued that, to account for all the varieties of the
passive construction observed in Kikamba, we need to look at the basic
features of the passive verb. The passive verb needs to be one that has an
inherent argument and one that can take an expletive subject. Similarly,
the analysis of the applicative construction points to the need to
recognize two functions of the applied affix: a transitivizing function and
a crossreferencing function. Object creation is shown to be a consequence
and not a function of the cross-referencing use of the applied affix. 2nd
printing 2008.
