Apprehensives in Australia & South America
Marine Vuillermet (DDL)

Apprehensives are mood markers encoding the undesirability and the (high) possibility of an event (Lichtenberk 1995; Verstraete 2005; Vuillermet to appear).

(1) ’Biya ’biya ’biya ’biya! Kekwa-ka-chana miya!
bee bee bee bee pierce-3A-APPREHENSIVE 2SG.ABS
‘Bee, bee, bee, bee! Watch out it might sting you!

To date, little is known about them. This is primarily due to the low frequency of such morphemes (e.g. Heath (1981:187), Olawsky (2006:513)), resulting in scanty descriptions (see however François (2003:301–312), Epps (2008:630–633), or Green (1989)). The terminology is also very heterogeneous across language areas and families (cf. admonitive (Meira 2009:314), apprehensional-epistemics (Lichtenberk 1995), monitory (van der Voort 2004:322), timitive (Lichtenberk 2008)).

The goal of this presentation is to examine the distribution and typological profile of apprehensives in two macro-areas (Hammarström & Donohue 2014), namely South America and Australia, using WALS-like maps. I hope to raise awareness of apprehensional morphology and inspire more fine-grained descriptions of the phenomenon.

mer. 13/12/2017 Atelier Histoire et Ecologie des Langues: Gerard Philippson: The bizarre phonological system of Bube (A31) and its relationship to “Proto- Bantu”.
ISH-Andre Frossard

The Bobe language (ebobée or ɛʧo, Bantu A31) spoken on the volcanic island of Bioko (formerly Fernando Póo) in Equatorial Guinea was until recently very poorly described. However publications by Justo Bolekia Boleká (Diccionario español-Bubi, 2009; Lingüística bantú a través del Bubi, 2008) have provided abundant lexical - and some grammatical - data which enable Bantuists to better take notice of both the great diversity of local varieties, which is doubtless due to the difficult mountainous terrain of this volcanic island, and of some specific phonological features not usually found together in the average Bantu language - I should point out that these are not exotic sounds per se (with the exception perhaps of an areally unusual supra-segmental phenomenon) since they mostly belong to a basic consonant inventory in terms of Maddieson (1984). What is surprising is the type of Bantu correspondences exhibited by the various dialects, some of which have unconditioned denasalisation like in ɓ≠ɔ́lla "child" cf. Duala m≠ɔ́na, and contextual nasalisation, in very unlikely environments like in si≠rɔːḿ "bird" CB *-nɔ̀dí or ba≠nna "blood", CB *-gìdá !

I will present in turn the geographical location of the language and the dialect situation on Bioko and briefly review the various linguistic groups of Guthrie's zone A and their phonological typology. I will then turn to the correspondences between the consonant inventories (vowels are not problematic) of the various dialects and how they relate to Common Bantu, pointing out their peculiarities vis-à-vis other Bantu languages. Finally I will discuss what these features can tell us on the position of Bube within the overall classification of Bantu languages.

The preliminary analysis of spontaneous Motion events in Nepali
Krishna Prasad Parajuli

In this talk, I will present a preliminary analysis of spontaneous motion events in Nepali, an Indo-Aryan language (Masica, 1991) spoken in Nepal by c. 12 million speakers (CBS report 2012). I will first introduce some general characteristics of Nepali, and will present the methodology and the data collected for this study. I will then discuss the different types of constructions used by the speakers to express motion (e.g. simplex vs. compound verbs, conjunctive participles), and show how semantic elements of motion (e.g. Path, Manner, Deixis) are distributed across the sentence in different lexical and grammatical elements. Furthermore, the presentation will address the use and the function of conjunctive participles (Grierson, 1916; Masica, 1991) that can convey the meaning of either Manner or Path, and that can express simultaneous co-events of motion or subsequent motion events.

ven. 22/12/2017 Séminaire DTT - Conférences Geny Gonzales et Esteban Diaz

Geny Gonzales (DDL): "Egophoricity and Evidential-Epistemic morphemes in Nam Trik"

The Barbacoan languages are known for having egophoric systems (Dickinson 2000, Curnow 2002, Floyd (to appear). Nevertheless, the existence of such a system in Nam Trik had not been fully argued for. Additionally, Nam Trik has a system of morphemes expressing the epistemic status and information source which, depending on the construction, can interact or be in contrastive distribution with the egophoric markers, including an undergoer suffix -t which has an egophoric distribution, refering to the speaker being affected in assertions referring and to the hearer being affected in questions.

Esteban Diaz (DDL): "Clause types and directives in Nasa Yuwe: a close look at the hortative construction"

In this talk I will present the mood and clause system of Nasa Yuwe with special focus on the expression of directive speech acts. Nasa Yuwe has five morphological marked moods that are mutually exclusive, these moods are one of the main mechanisms for clause type marking. Although in the language three dedicated (direct) imperatives (imperative, prohibitive, jussive) are available, there are several non dedicated (indirect) constructions that convey directive meanings. I will give a closer look to the hortative as a special case of a highly conventionalized directive construction based on the non-assertive mood. Finally I will discuss the status of the hortative construction as a fully differentiated clause type.
