Gemination Processes: Motivation, Form, and Constraints.
Niang, Mamadou
Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, v20 p39-52 1995
Gemination in Pulaar, a dialect of Fula, does not always follow typically known gemination processes and previous attempts to analyze Pulaar gemination processes have been unsatisfactory. The proposed analyses fail to account for numerous exceptions and do not provide a comprehensive analysis of all gemination processes in Pulaar. In this paper, the shortcomings of previous analyses are shown, and a satisfactory and comprehensive account of gemination processes in Pulaar is provided. Contains 17 references. (Author/JL)
