Typology of Kimbeere Relative Clauses in Kimbeere

Peter Kinyua Muriungi, Nancy Mbandi Mutange


In this paper we explore the typology of Kimbeere- a Kenya Bantu language. The paper demonstrates that like in other languages, Kimbere has different types of relative clauses namely restrictive, non-restrictive, direct, indirect, appositive, headless among other. Kimbere also has a type of relative clause called ingi relative. The paper is descriptive and contributes typological data which is crucial for drawing principles and parameters in natural language.

Key Words: Relative clause, direct, indirect, headless, restrictive, typology
