Short Abstract:

As the field of Bantu typology is gaining momentum, this workshop aims to obtain a picture of the synchronic variation within the Bantu language family. Going beyond lexical data to consider morphosyntax, phonology, and semantics, the workshop discusses possible typological generalisations and explanations of variation in word order, honorification, reflexives and reciprocals, existential locationals, focus marking strategies, and transitivity, as well as methodological issues.
