I would like to work with Aaliyah Bullen and Jadyn Elliot
- Northern Ndebele
|Language||ISO 639-3||Morphological Typology||Basic Information||Text Availability|
|Yaeyama||rys||Agglutinative: like Japanese, Yaeyama has a high amount of morphemes per word, and suffixal morphology where the suffixes are easily differentiable from the main meaning-carrying morpheme. ||
||I eventually found that the article I was using earlier actually has a great multi-page text example complete with glosses and translation! |
|Northern Ndebele||nde||Agglutinative: It has a lot of affixal morphology and clearcut boundaries between morphemes. However, it doesn't resemble a typical agglutinative language in that the meanings of some morphemes can combine meaning.||I found a research paper with a small extract of text with translation, but nothing more than that yet. But I could probably find some more with help or more time.|
|Kabyle||kab||Likely agglutinative: It has lots of prefixal and suffixal morphology, and Berber languages tend to lean towards aggluginative.||
||I found a swadesh list here but as of yet I haven't found any full texts with translation. There may be more French to/from Kabyle translations of texts out there because it is mainly spoken in Algeria (most of the papers I'm finding are unfortunately in French).|
