Title:Textual functions of Chidigo demonstratives
Abstract:From introduction: "In this paper I will present an analysis, based on a corpus of approximately 14,000 words, of the textual functions of demonstratives in Chidigo (Digo: E.73; North-East Coast, Sabaki). Four types of demonstratives are distinguished, three of which have both a basic form and at least one variant form. In addition to spatialdeictic and textual uses, class 8 demonstratives are used to express time and manner; I will suggest correspondences between the functions of class 8 demonstratives when referring to entities and when referring to abstract qualities such as time and manner."
