Title:Inflection of the Manyika verb
Author:Stevick, W.
Periodical:Nada: The Southern Rhodesia Native Affairs Department Annual
Geographic term:Zimbabwe
Subject:Manyika language
Abstract:This paper undertakes to describe the inflection of the single-word forms of regular Manyika verbs, and is an attempt to answer two questions: What elements may enter into a single-word verb form in Manyika?, and, Within a word, how may these elements be arranged with respect to one another? The author hopes to arrive in this way at a description which will mirror as closely as possible the 'immanent structure' of the speech habits of the Mumanyika, in so far as these habits relate to the formation of single-word verbs.
