A description and comparison of the tense-aspect systems and verbal negation in ten Bamileke languages

Summary of the research project: This study aims at describing the verbal system (TAM, verb root, verbal extension, negation) of a group of languages in Cameroon (the Bamileke cluster of Grassfields Bantu languages) from a comparative perspective in order to determine what might be the possible subgroupings of these languages and thereby, clearing controversy surrounding their classification. In this respect, the corpus used in this study is based on a questionnaire consisting of paradigmatic sentences which have the advantage of producing highly comparable data. Furthermore, previous studies on the languages will also be consulted. The analyses will mainly focus on the identification of the features that Bamileke languages have in common as well as the differences that exist between them as far as the verbal system is concerned. By suggesting subgroupings for Bamileke languages, this study will improve on the internal classification of this group of languages. Moreover, this study will contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge on Bamileke languages.
