Аспектуальные системы южных манде в диахронической перспективе

Abstract : The genetic distance among the languages of the Southern Mande group (Niger-Congo) is comparable to that among Germanic languages. Unlike what is typical for the Indo-European languages, the verbal morphology of Southern Mande is hard to reconstruct. The main reason is that the proto-Southern Mande was, most probably, a predominantly isolating language, and the morphological markers of the modern languages are, in their majority, recent innovations. Still, certian forms (imperfective, perfective, imperative) can be reconstructed. It turns out that the majority of inflexional morphemes in Southern Mande are, by their origin, locative postpositions.
