About this Item

Zaniza Zapotec. Natalie Operstein. University of California, Fullerton. Zaniza Zapotec is an Otomanguean language spoken in the town of Santa María Zaniza in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. The language is endangered and presently undocumented. The grammar outline presented in this book is based on the author’s fieldwork carried out in Mexico between 1999 and 2009, and is the first grammatical sketch of Zaniza Zapotec to appear in print. Typical of Zapotec languages, Zaniza Zapotec has tones, stress, five vowel qualities, contrastive vowel phonations, and consonantal fortis-lenis contrast that comprises most of its twenty-seven consonant sounds. Its verbal system marks aspect and mood by prefixes; there is no overt morphological marking of tense. Most Zaniza Zapotec verbs come in opposite-valence pairs. In contrast to many related languages, there is a productive anticausative/passive morpheme and an intricate system of interaction between negation and mood/aspect markers. Zaniza Zapotec has suppletion in both nouns and verbs, including with respect to the person of the recipient in the verb give. Natalie Operstein is the author of Consonant Structure and Prevocalization (2010) and co-editor of Valence Changes in Zapotec: Synchrony, Diachrony, Typology (2015). This book will be of interest to Zapotec experts, typologists and general linguists. ISBN 9783862886593. Languages of the World/Materials 504. 123pp. 2015. 148mm x 210mm.
