Abstract:

Coordinate constructions in Fadicca Nubian have not been studied in depth. In order to understand the Fadicca coordinate constructions in a satisfactory way, we need to study them in the light of coordinate constructions in such a familiar language as English. There is another reason for the selection of English as part of the comparison here: to verify the claim (cf. Armbruster, 1960; Sokory, 1990) that these two languages manifest no difference as far as coordinate constructions are concerned. The comparison of coordinate constructions in the two languages involves the semantic types of coordination, the scope of coordinators in the two languages, the number and position of coordinators in coordinate constructions. The paper also shows that Fadicca is one of the languages that lack writing, yet it has its own indigenous coordinators (cf. Haspelmath, 2000:7).
