Thanks. I have started to work on it, had started with vowel harmony though not yet posted there. But it is fine we can do it together. Allen Asiimwe 13:24, 19 March 2010 (UTC) --Miaomiao Zhang 11:12, 13 December 2010 (UTC)Miaomiao Nice page!
Hi Justus, I have seen your message about annotating and marking the participle in RR, however i have some reservations about -riku- as a marker:
1. Does it apply to all participles in RR (I.E PRESENT, PERFECT, 'ALREADY', AND 'NOT YET'? OR Is it an exclusive participle marker in RR?
2. Could it be that "-ku-" is a mere verb infinitive form used in compound structures, because "Another form of the verb often used in compound verbs is the infinitive" and -ri- is a tense marker. as suggested here; http://webspace.ship.edu/cgboer/morphology.html
3.Must we combine two morphemes each with its own independent meaning to mark participle, and in any case what kind of participle?
4. Do we have enough literature in Bantu languages to support this claim, because if it is indeed true, it should at least have some varriants or at least cognates in lanuages like Rotooro and Runyoro, LAGANDA and maybe Ruhaya --natumanyam 15:27, 13 October 2011 (UTC)--natumanyam 15:27, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
