  • Product Description
 

This book looks at how English loanwords are accommodated in Shona, a Southern Bantu language. The first article looks at phonological processes that are utilized when Ndau, a dialect of Shona which spokenly mainly in Chipinge borrows words from English. Theses are glide epenthesis, vowel epenthesis and substitution of sounds that are not found in Ndau. Glide and vowel epentheses are triggered to maintain the syllable structure of Ndau which is basically CV. The second article looks at how English phonological structure is influencing Shona phonology. This is because English loanwords in Shona are maintaining some of their phonological features so much that the syllable structure of Shona is changing from the basic CV to CCV because consonant clusters in English loanwords are maintained in Shona. This second article therefore argues for the existence of the new variety of Shona which is gradually developing.
