Item Description: LINCOM, 2009. Softcover. Book Condition: Neu. Dust Jacket Condition: Gut. 1. Auflage. These Kabba folk stories have been recorded in the Central African Republic in 1998. They were told by gifted Kabba storytellers to a mixed audience of adults and children. Jean-Pierre Dingatoloum transcribed them. A number of different Kabba speakers, translated them into French. Rosmarie Moser translated them into English and Knut Olawsky into German. Traditional folktales play an important educational role in African societies. They express cultural values through metaphorical narratives and the personification of animals and mythical creatures. They contain covert meanings and messages and they are both amusing and thought-provoking. Rosmarie Moser is the author of “Kabba: A Nilo-Saharan Language of the Central African Republic” (2004), and the compiler with Jean-Pierre Dingatoloum of the “Kabba-English-French Dictionary” (2007).

Item Description: LINCOM, 2010. Softcover. Book Condition: Neu. Dust Jacket Condition: Neu. 1. Auflage. This collection of descriptive Kabba Short Stories in four languages (Kabba, French, English and German) is of great cultural, historical and linguistic value and interest for people of all ages, places and backgrounds. Some stories deal with ancient and pre-colonial practices, worldviews and belief systems, such as initiation ceremonies, sorcery, polygamy, birth processes, marriage ceremonies, and death rituals. Others describe life in the villages, and such things as the cultivation of millet and sesame, the construction of houses, the killing of a goat, the preparation of a special sauce, and the collection of honey. As the Kabba are traditional hunters and fishermen as well as agriculturalists, some of the stories naturally deal with hunting and fishing. Others deal with the conflicts and changes involved with the arrival of the ‘white man’, such as the introduction of hospitals, schools, literacy, cultivation of cotton, digging for diamonds, and playing football. Some stories are very personal and deal with emotional issues, experiences and interpersonal relationships. These stories were told in Bangui during the years 1989 and 1999 by men aged between 20 and 50. They are all experts in the fields they are describing. This collection was edited and compiled by Rosmarie Moser. It follows the publication by Lincom-Europa of ‘Kabba: A Nilo-Saharan Language of the Central African Republic’ (2004), ‘Kabba-English-French Dictionary’ (2007) and ‘Kabba Folk Tales and Proverbs’ (2009).

Item Description: LINCOM, 2004. Softcover. Book Condition: Neu. Dust Jacket Condition: Sehr gut. 1. Auflage. Kabba belongs to the Western-Sara group of the Central-Sudanic branch of the Nilo-Saharan languages (80,000 speakers in the North of C.A.R., 20,000 in Chad and Cameroon). The grammar consists of ten chapters and is followed by a complete and interlinearised traditional folkstory told by Daniel Tambe. Many examples throughout this thesis come from this story, which displays many features discussed. Other examples come from a variety of sources in the author's extensive data collection. They are referred to by the codes in brackets. The introductory first chapter looks at the historical and ethnic background of the speakers of the Kabba language, discusses its linguistic classification and provides an overview of its typological features. Chapter two deals with the sound system, which includes implosives, affricates, homorganic prenasalised obstruents, syllabic nasal consonants, nasalised vowels and vowel harmony. Syllabic structures and phonotactics are also discussed in this chapter. Tonal patterns are investigated, exemplified and discussed in chapter three. Kabba has three level tones and four contour tones. Bound morphemes and morphological processes are explored in chapter four. A detailed analysis and discussion of subject, object and possessive pronouns is included. Alienable possession plays an important part. Chapter five deals with the nominal morphology found of the Kabba language. It includes a discussion of noun phrases, noun collocations, adjectival structures, numerical expressions, reciprocity, logophoric pronouns, reflexives, relative pronouns, conjunctions, case markers and adpositions. Chapter six contains an exemplified discussion of semantic and grammatical verb categories, transitivity, tense-aspect-mood and adverbial expressions. Basic clause structures are illustrated and discussed in chapter seven, which includes declarative, interrogative, negative, imperative and exclamatory clauses. Copula clauses and verbless clauses are also discussed. Chapter eight deals with complex predicate structures, such as serialisation, consecutivisation and grammaticalisation. Chapter nine investigates and discusses complex clause structures, such as coordination, subordination, complementation and relativisation. Discourse features are analysed, exemplified and discussed in the last chapter. They include grounding, participant reference, marked focus, direct and indirect quotations and pragmatic particles. A conclusion at the end of each major section summarises the findings. LINCOM Studies in African Linguistics 63. 504 pp. 148mm x 210mm. Bookseller Inventory # B-9783895868283

Item Description: LINCOM, 2007. Softcover. Book Condition: Neu. Dust Jacket Condition: Gut. 1. Auflage. Kabba is a Central-Sudanic language of the West-Sara group; it is spoken by approximately 80,000 people in the Central African Republic. The Kabba are warriors, agriculturalists, hunters and fishermen. They migrated from East-Africa to the C.A.R. during civil upheavals and slave trade. The Kabba fought alongside the French in Europe and in Indo-China. The C.A.R., which was previously called Ubangi-Shari, gained its independence from France in 1960. Rosmarie Moser worked five years (1994-1999) as linguist among the Kabba. She is the author of ‘Kabba: A Nilo-Saharan Language of the Central African Republic’, which was published by LINCOM in 2004. Jean-Pierre Dingatoloum, a Kabba and French-English teacher, was her close collaborator. Together they compiled the Kabba words and expressions and translated them into French and English.
