Example text

In Goemai, labialization and palatalization are mutually exclusive, but prenasalization can co-occur with either of them. Since it was not always possible to find minimal pairs exemplifying all four oppositions, some of the words in table (9) simultaneously illustrate labialization I palatalization and prenasalization. Notice that there are some systematic gaps in the table (marked "-") and that labialization is sometimes realized as [w] and sometimes as [H]. Most gaps result from the diachronic process summarized in table (5) above: alveolar palatalized fricatives developed into palatal fricatives (thus accounting for the gap in the alveolar fricatives), and the new palatal fricatives cannot be palatalized again, nor can they be labialized since palatalization and labialization are mutually exclusive (thus accounting for the gap in the palatal fricatives).

Phonetically, it is conceivable that Proto-Chadic voiced stops would become voiceless, while voiceless stops would become ejective. In the analysis adopted here, however, the contrast is in aspiration (and the lexical comparison suggests that his 'ejective' corresponds to my 'non-aspirated'). That is, it would now be necessary to account for why Proto-Chadic voiced stops became voiceless aspirated, and why voiceless stops became voiceless nonaspirated. Phonemes, tonemes and orthography 25 already occurred at the level of Proto-Angas-Goemai.

The constructions serve to highlight specific thematic roles and aspectual properties (and downplay others), thus restricting the meaning potential of verbs. , the logic that underlies it, that makes it unique and that motivates its grammatical structures. For Goemai, it can be argued that its grammar is driven by the above verbal and nominal lexicalization patterns, combined with a scarcity of overt morphology. 2. Diachronic origins The diachronic origins of present-day Goemai grammar can be traced to different sources.
