Phonologie de la langue koalibe : Dialecte réré (Soudan)

Abstract : Koalib is a Kordofanian language (Heiban branch) with 100.000 or so speakers, all of whom live in or come from the Sudanese province of South-Kordofan.
This book deals with the phonology of the language, examining successively its vowels, consonants, tonology, syllabic structure and writing system. Phonologie de la langue koalibe [Koalib Phonology] is due to be the first volume of a fuller description of Koalib, which will include other books covering Koalib morphology, syntax and lexicon.
The main dialect at stake herein is rere (koalib ÑèrÁÆ‹À), spoken in the region of Abri, i.e. in the very centre of the Koalib-speaking area.
This first Phonologie de la langue koalibe, is aimed at any person interested in historical or comparative linguistics, at a World- or African-level.
