A statistical approach to African personal pronouns
Guillaume Segerer & Martine Vanhove - CNRS LLACAN, France

Research goals

  • To check claims made in WALS (Nichols & Peterson 2008a, 2008b) about the worldwide distribution of certain subsets of pronominal systems by detailed survey of African data.
  • To check if there are any patterns in prononominal systems that could be specific to Africa

  •  <  ALT8 (8th Biennial Conference of the Association for Linguistic Typology), University of California, Berkeley, July 23-26, 2009  >
