Sequential Pronouns in Nkwen Language

Advertisements

The sequential Pronoun is noticed in Nkwen Language when a person carries out a series of activities in a sequence or serially. For Example

Ləm à ghə nkha ədzͻ̀, mbû nsû, nti’i nniŋə a məme àkaŋə nkwusə.  (Lem went and harvested plums, came back, prepared it, put it in a dish, and covered.)

The sequential markers m and n as illustrated above refer to the same person  “Ləm”.  Without these markers, the sentence cannot be coherent. Thus there is a degree of cohesion between these markers and the person for several verbs in a sequence.
