Comment se sortir d'un mauvais pas: Variation sur la 2ème personne dans les langues tchadiques Sud-Bauchi

Abstract : The Proto-West-Chadic pronominal system reconstructed by Newman & Schuh shows a singular/plural opposition relying mainly on a vocalic contrast inside a CV form. As the vocalic contrast has been replaced by /ə/ in South-Bauchi West (SBW) languages, another exponent had to be found to maintain the sg/pl opposition. After a quick presentation of the SBW group of languages, the paper analyses the various solutions developed by 12 out of the 27 SBW languages in order to keep a contrast between the 2sg and 2pl pre-verbal pronouns of the Aorist, as well as the consequences entailed for verbal plurality in SBW.
