Topics in Bantu Syntax

This course will consider select topics in the syntax of Bantu languages with an emphasis on the relationship between morphological phenomena such as agreement and syntactic phenomena such as argument structure and information structure relations in the clause. Formal, descriptive, and typological perspectives will be considered and readings will draw on a range of theoretical traditions that have been applied to the study of Bantu languages. A brief introduction to the comparative Bantu linguistics will also be provided in order to provide context for the data to be discussed.
