MULL-lab, 03/23 – Katya Morgunova

MULL-lab will be meeting this Wednesday, March 23rd at 4pm. 

Katya will be presenting: Augmenting the Kirundi augment. Abstract is attached below:


Abstract: The augment is a nominal prefix found in some Bantu languages. It is usually associated with the semantics of definiteness and is often argued to be a D-head. In this talk, I present some new data collected from ongoing fieldwork on the distribution of the augment in Kirundi (Great Lakes Bantu). Following a discussion of prior work in Kirundi and other Bantu languages, I also share my initial analysis of the syntax and semantics of the Kirundi augment.
