Notes on Lower Jubba Maay
Jade Comfort and Mary Paster
204-216 (complete paper or proceedings contents)

Abstract

This paper describes aspects of the phonology, morphology, and syntax of Lower Jubba Maay, a Cushitic language of southern Somalia. This dialect of Maay is contrasted with Somali dialects, since there is some question as to whether Maay is a Somali dialect or a separate language. Points of theoretical, comparative, and typological interest in the language are highlighted.
