A Comprehensive Account of Lexical Adoptives in Icibemba

by Mubanga Kashoki

Prof. Mubanga E. Kashoki deals with a subject that is often neglected in linguistics - lexical borrowings, and how they enrich a language that adopts them. The study is organised into four parts, Introduction; Glossary of Lexical Adoptives in Icibemba; The Sociocultural Context of Lexical Adoptives in Icibemba; and Phonological and Morphological incorporation in processes involved in lexical adoption in Icibemba.
