Reviews

The volumes [III, IV] may be recommended to all Chadicists, and to scholars making research in Afro-Asiatic languages, but also to general linguists interested in topics such as predication focus, verbal extensions, spatial relations and TAM system. Both volumes contain a valuable collection of language data which is accesible to non-Chadicists becuase [sic!] most papers provide morphological glosses and use IPA symbols.
