Le parler Ngbaka Minagende, langue oubanguienne du Zaire : unités de base, prédication et énonciation

Abstract : My purpose is to show that the tonematic supports ensure the cohesion of the language, both at phonematic and grammatical levels. This cohesion is the result of two phenomena, which are closely linked and complementary: the predication and the performance. - After several field research campaigns, I decided to adopt the model of Emilio Bonvini, elaborated when he described the Kasim language. The work is divided into two parts : 1. description of the basic units of the language which enable this language to exist and to be identified as such; i.e. presentation of the main ethnolinguistic and linguistic information, phonetics and phonematics of the segmental and tonic domain, as well as the tonology of the melodic domain. 2. Predication and performance. i then analyze the main performative and non performative phenomena as structural elements within the scheme and in scheme sequences. These morphosyntactic phenomena are correlated with the verbal and nominal elements. - i conclude in demonstrating to what extend my analysis is based upon a linguistic theory which shows much better than usual and traditional approaches how rich the Ngbaka language is.
