PartType: type of particle

Values: Cop Disc

We use the PartType feature to distinguish the different roles performed by the particles of Naija.

Cop: copular

The particle is considered copulative when it is used to link a subject with its nonverbal predicate. In Naija, the subject may be omitted.


Note : na is a copulative particle frequently used for focalization, such as in clefts

Disc: discourse

The PartType feature takes this value for discourse particles elements such as sha or o.


PartType in other languages: [af] [de] [ga] [gd] [gv] [pcm] [ro] [tl] [u] [uk] [zh]
