About this Item

"Like many Bantu languages, Setswana is remarkable for the complexity of its tonal morphology, particularly in the verb system. This stuy provides the first comprehensive study of verb tonology in Setswana, a language of the Sotho group spoken in Botswana asnd South Africa. Prof. Creissles, a major contributor to general and African linguistics, and his two co-authors develop a domain-based approach to Setswana tonology which is particularly relevant to recent developments in the theoretical study of tone. It is shown that most tonal alternations observed in the morphology of the Setswana verb can be described as expansions pr retractions of high tone domains, but that segmentally and tonally empty syllables must be posited in underlying representations in order to achieve an optimal account of the tonal phenomena in question.
