    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This is the first description of Goemai, a West Chadic language of Nigeria. Goemai is spoken in a language contact area, and this contact has shaped Goemai grammar to the extent that it can be considered a fairly untypical Chadic language. The grammar presents the structure of the present-day language, relates it to its diachronic sources, and adds a semantic perspective to the description.

    • This is a landmark effort towards reviving the geomatics language which had been under tremendously pressure of English and Hausa languages. The Gorman has been one of the most socially organised group monarchy in nigeria before colonialism.
