A STUDY OF HAUSA SYNTAX. VOLUME II, FUNCTION WORDS. HARTFORD STUDIES IN LINGUISTICS, NUMBER 9.
KRAFT, CHARLES H.
IN THIS SECOND VOLUME (CHAPTER V) OF A THREE-PART SERIES ON HAUSA SYNTAX, THE EMPHASIS IS ON THE FUNCTION RATHER THAN THE FORM OF WORDS. (THE FIRST VOLUME DISCUSSES SYNTAX AND THE THIRD DEALS WITH SPECIFIC TEXTS.) IN ADDITION TO THOROUGH TREATMENT OF THE PARTICULAR HAUSA FUNCTION WORDS, A SMALL GROUP OF WORDS WITH FREQUENT OCCURRENCE AND HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT SYNTACTIC FUNCTIONS, THERE IS ALSO A DISCUSSION OF THE LARGE NUMBER OF NOUNS WHICH ARE SYNTACTICALLY SIMILAR TO THE FUNCTION WORDS. LINGUISTICALLY, THE ANALYSIS TAKES THE SLOT-FILLER APPROACH, WHICH IS ALSO THE FORMAT OF THE FIRST VOLUME. THE ENTIRE VOLUME IS BASED ON AN INTENSIVE TREATMENT OF A CORPUS OF APPROXIMATELY 30,000 MORPHEMES WHICH INCLUDES THE NINETEEN-TEXT CORPUS USED FOR CHAPTERS II, III, AND IV OF THE STUDY. THIS STUDY IS AVAILABLE FROM THE HARTFORD SEMINARY FOUNDATION, HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT 06105. (FB)
