Item description for A Grammar of Koyra Chiini: The Songhay of Timbuktu (Mouton Grammar Library, 19) (Mouton Grammar Library) by Jeffrey Heath...
This is the first grammar in English of a language of the Songhay family of West Africa. The emphasis is on grammatical categories and morphosyntax. Topics of special interest are focalization and relativization, logophoric pronouns, conjunction, and serial verbs. The factual presentation is straightforward, without theory-specific formalisms.
Koyra Chiini and its offshoot Djenn Chiini (described in an appendix) are of historical interest as possible semi-creolized versions of mainstream Songhay languages.
