  • Product Description
 

This book has been written for readers with an interest in Bantu linguistics for which Shona is an examplar. It mainly discusses issues of Bantu morphology, syntax and semantics. Heard-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), the theory of analysis employed in this book has made it possible to offer an analysis of Shona grammar, exposing the interface relations that obtain from causative constructions. The book provides insights into causativisation as a lexical phenomenon, tracing the developments in the study of causatives universally and locating where Shona stands as far as the study of causative constructions is concerned. The book has a unique approach to Bantu grammar, blended within the theoretical prowess of the non-transformational HPSG as a linguistic formalism. The book provides a platform for researchers with interest in interface relations, particularly the syntax-semantics interface that obtain from complex predicates, to which causative constructions belong.
