9780300081893: The Hausa Language: An Encyclopedic Reference Grammar

This book is a comprehensive grammar of Hausa, one of the largest and most important languages of Africa. Hausa is spoken by some 35 million people as a first language and approximately 15 million more as a second language. Paul Newman, a world authority on the Hausa language, draws on two centuries of Hausa linguistic scholarship to provide the most authoritative and detailed grammar of the language ever written.

Unlike other grammars, this book is organized alphabetically. Readers will appreciate the ease with which they can find the specific individual topics that interest them. The grammar covers such expected topics as tonology, noun plurals, and verbal tense/aspect as well as often neglected topics, including verbal idioms, proper names, and language games. Newman also incorporates historical linguistic notes that explain and explicate current Hausa phenomena, especially puzzling anomalies, in terms of their Chadic and Afroasiatic origins.

About the Author:

Paul Newman is professor in the department of linguistics at Indiana University. He is the author or coauthor of twelve books, including West African Travels and Adventures: Two Autobiographical Narratives from Northern Nigeria, published by Yale University Press.

Review:

"There simply is not has never been a Hausa grammar that comes close to matching this work. Anyone involved with Hausa teaching or linguistics should have a copy handy." Patrick Bennett, University of Wisconsin at Madison
