Focus Strategies in African Languages

The book contains a collection of articles on focus in the Niger-Congo and Afro-Asiatic language groups. It investigates focus-related phenomena from different theoretical and methodological perspectives: the interaction of focus and prosody, the effect of focus on word order, the inventory of focus-marking devices, and others. The volume enhances the understanding of focus-marking in natural language.
