    This book gives a comprehensive introduction to Comparative Indo-European Linguistics. It starts with a presentation of the languages of the family (from English and the other Germanic languages, the Celtic and Slavic languages, Latin, Greek and Sanskrit through Armenian and Albanian) and a discussion of the culture and origin of the Indo-Europeans, the speakers of the Indo-European proto. Northern Mao (Afroasiatic-Omotic) employs a set of non-final (medial/converb) verbs and aspectual morphology to distinguish events on the main storyline from background comment in narrative discourse. These verb-forms include same-subject (ss) and different-subject (ds) (medial verb-like) and temporally-integrated (ti) (converb-like) constructions in clause chains. Hamitic" languages (without Chadic and Omotic) was published by Marcel Cohen in 7, and the first historical and comparative grammar of the AA [Afrasian] phylum was published by the Russian scholar Igor M. Diakonoff in Since then historical and comparative studies of the AA languages have flourished in Leningrad/burg, and cul­.

    This book is the first general introduction to African languages and linguistics to be published in English. It covers the four major language groupings (Niger-Congo, Nilo-Saharan, Afroasiatic and Khoisan), the core areas of modern theoretical linguistics (phonology, morphology, syntax), typology, sociolinguistics, comparative linguistics, and language, history and society. This textbook deals with the grammatical category of person, which covers the first person, the second person, and the third person. Drawing on data from over languages, Anna Siewierska compares the use of person within and across different languages, and examines the factors underlying this variation.   The author reconstructs earlier aspectual systems in the Afro-Asiatic phylum. A central piece of the book is the development of aspectual and temporal categories in individual languages from the Old towards their Middle periods. It offers important contributions to our understanding of universals, and the typology and diachrony of tense and :

SyntaxTextGen not activatedPdf languages also have a marked reduction in the pdf material of words compared with other Afro-Asiatic languages. That is, they tend to be much shorter with regard to numbers of consonants and vowels (), a situation that renders morphological comparisons within the phylum e of the high frequency of monosyllabic words, many Omotic languages use tonal distinctions.

The book then describes the Phonology, Morphology and Syntax of the Language. On phonology, the book treats the sound system, phonological processes and the tonal system of the language. The section on Morphology treats, in part, nominal and verbal morphology of the language.Omotic' discusses case affixes across the family as a whole, ebook some comparisons with Cushitic.

Ebook greater part of the description centres on the languages in Fleming's Gimojan group (Fleming, 'Cushitic and Omotic', in L. Bender et al. (ed.): Language in Ethiopia, London, ). Six are described: Gimira, Yemsa, and the Ometo languages.
