Sample text

The surface-phonemic principle is generally not followed in the rules that simplify or delete a stop preceding a syllabic nasal. Verbs are cited in their Imperative form. Verbs and nouns whose lexical tone is not known are marked by the symbol ° in the gloss. In transcriptions between phonetic brackets and elsewhere, post-lexical H-spreading is not represented. Translations have been kept quite literal. In some cases, an even more literal wording follows between brackets if it may help to understand the Sheko structure better.

In contrast, Bender (2000; 2003) classified Dizoid as South Omotic together with Dime and the Aroid languages. A main reason for this shift lies in the forms of the pronouns. Thus, Majoid is dissimilar from North Omotic, and at the same time its similarity to South Omotic languages is limited, so that Majoid was only recently associated with the South Omotic branch. Hayward (2009: 92) remarks on Majoid that ‘this group stands somewhere midway between Aroid and the TN languages 3 . ’ On the internal classification of Majoid, Aklilu (2003) proposes a split between Diizi on the one hand and Sheko-Nayi on the other, based on phonological correspondence-sets.

The presentation is data-intensive, and some texts are made available in the appendix. In this way, the reader is invited to check the analysis and come up with counter-analyses where necessary. Although this work is first and foremost descriptive, I have added comparative notes wherever I thought it might be fruitful. The careful reader will discover a tendency to cite from works on Benchnon, Zargulla and Dime in particular. Benchnon is the geographical neighbor of Sheko and belongs to North Omotic, together with Zargulla.
