Abstract:

NEW EDITION

A Reference Grammar of Mbay

John Keegan

A Reference Grammar of Mbay provides a solid introduction to the grammar of
Mbay, a Sara Language of the Central-Sudanic branch of Nilo-Saharan. The
initial chapters provide a description of segmental phonology, including a
justification for the writing system used in both the grammar and in the
Dictionary of Mbay. Inflectional morphology and word formation are then
treated, together with any associated phonological change. The last three
chapters deal with Mbay syntax. The grammatical descriptions are
accompanied by hundreds of examples, and in most cases both a word-for-word
translation and a more colloquial translation are included.

This second edition of the reference grammar contains few substantive
changes. Conclusions regarding tone simplification have been modified based
on an analysis of recordings made on the topic, and the description of the
phonetic quality of the neutralized vowel has also been revised. Some
statistics regarding the distribution of tone patterns have been added to
the end of chapter one. A large number of other minor revisions and
additions have been made, and in many areas new explanatory details and
examples have been provided. The most significant change in this edition
has been the addition of a large number of morpheme-by-morpheme English
translations for illustrative sentences where only a colloquial translation
had been available in the first edition.
