ACCORD PREDICATIF ET ATTRIBUTIF EN SYNTAXE DU KISWAHILI

Abstract : Kiswahili, the Bantu language of zone G42, distinguishes four categories of variable forms, namely : - The noun, characterized by the substantival prefix ; - The adjective, characterized by the adjectival prefix ; - The pronominal forms, marked by the pronominal prefix ; - The verbal forms, marked by the verbal prefix. The shape of the prefixes of the last three quoted categories is commanded by the shape of substantival prefix. It is this phenomenon that explains the fact that the shape of prefix is commanded by the shape of another prefix that we call agreement. Used according to the descriptive method and the structuralist approach, the present study focusses, on the one hand, on the attributive agreement, that is the agreement which concerns adjectives and pronominal forms and, on the other hand, on the predicative agreement, that is the agreement which relates to the verbal forms. This study emphasizes the syntactical peculiarities of these two types: attributive and prédicative. The interest to carry out such an analysis concerning these syntactical peculiarities of Kiswahili is that the agreement of the attributive and predicative are generally different from those usually presented in morphology of this language.
