Tigre (Samhar) Text and Grammatical Notes

image of Brill's Journal of Afroasiatic Languages and Linguistics

This paper presents and discusses a text in the Tigre language, delivered by a speaker of the Samhar dialect. The accompanying notes indicate several grammatical issues that arise from the text and are either specific to this dialect or have never been discussed explicitly in the Tigre literature. Among these are: receding vowel harmony in rounding, length in closed syllables, the two-syllable stress window, the purposive əgəl in the infinitive construction and in object marking, the connectives yɛni and ende, negation, focus and direct and indirect speech.
