Om Ponsiano Kanijo

Background

I obtained my M.A. in Linguistics and B.A. in Education at the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Currently, I am working as an assistant lecturer in Linguistics at Mkwawa University College of Education, a constituent college of the University of Dar es Salaam located in Iringa, Tanzania.

Research project

 

This PhD project aims to investigate the way tense and aspect categories in KìNyàmwéézì interact with different types of verbs. To this end, I will first identify the various types of verbs in KìNyàmwéézì by providing their aspectual properties. In a next step, these verbs will be analysed to find out how they interact (co-occur) with different types of verbs. The analysis will involve one of two related theoretical frameworks: the functional approach by Dik (1989) and Sasse’s (1991a) and Breu’s (1985, 1994) models of inherent boundaries.

KìNyàmwéézì is a Bantu language spoken by 796 339 inhabitants of rural and urban areas in the Tabora region, Tanzania. The name KìNyàmwéézì comes from the Swahili verb ku-nya, ‘to defecate’, and the noun mwezi, ‘moon’, and can be translated as ‘people of the moon’, that is, they came from the west where the moon rises.
