La focalisation en afar

Abstract : In Afar, focalization has two main characteristics : the syntactic link between focalization and complexe sentences, and the spliting of the focus markers in the utterance. Apart from verb focalization where only the verb is marked, two words are marked : the verb itself and the focused word which is identified by a different marker. Syntactically, no focused word, but the verb, bears the marks of its grammatical function which is expressed by another element in the utterance.
