Title:Case in the Booran dialect of Oromo
Author:Owens, JonathanISNI
Periodical:Afrika und Übersee: Sprachen, Kulturen
Geographic term:Kenya
Subject:Borana dialect
Abstract:The author outlines the form and function of the Booran case system.

He assumes that every nominal is marked by one case form or another, and that these forms can be correlated with syntactic and/or semantico-syntactic categories. The main sections of this paper are: Introduction and theoretical preliminaries - Case forms - Phrase-final cases - Co-occurrence relations - Verbal case markers. Notes, ref.
