A TABLE OF NOUN PREFIXES IN NKWEN LANGUAGE

https://youtube.com/c/TaminangThereseN

Below is a table showing the different noun prefixes in Nkwen Language. There are nine (9) noun classes following the noun prefixes. The prefixes in class one (1) are made up of the nasals (m, n). It should be noted that classes 2, 5 and 7 are plural classes while the rest are singular. Thus, class seven (7) is different from class (3) three which is a singular class, though they both bear the prefix ǝ̀. The last class (9) has no noun prefix.

Mastering the Alphabet 3; Double Sounds; Enabling Reading for Slow Learners

Double Sounds

This publication aims to help pupils who, after passing through level one (Primary 1&2), reach levels two and three (Primary 3 – 6) without knowing how to read a simple text. They can give correct answers to oral questions but cannot read the questions themselves. This makes them fail their exams, not because they are dull. Some teachers also hurriedly teach the alphabet without taking into consideration some basic principles. This class of pupils is merely slow to understand and needs gradual guidance to the art of reading. This book answers to the difficulties faced by these pupils at all levels. Parents and teachers are advised to use this book for a better result in the performance of the Slow Learners. My grand-daughter in 4k (Nursery 2) can read so well as she follows lessons in Mastering the Alphabet books 1,2, and 3.

The Sequential Pronoun in Nkwen Language

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 ŋkha ədzͻ̀, mbû nsû, nti’i nniŋə a məme àkaŋə ŋkwusə.  (Lem went and harvested plums, came back, prepared it, put it in a dish and covered.)

The sequential markers m, n and ŋ,  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.
