On root and subordinate clause structure in Kabardian
Mukhadin Kumakhov and Karina Vamling
The paper gives a short overview of the general properties of the grammar of Kabardian (East Circassian) followed by sections on verbal forms in subordination and basic aspects of complementation.
Kabardian is a Northwest-Caucasian language, most closely related to Adyghe (West Circassian). It is spoken by 390.800 people in the Kabardino-Balkarianrepublic in the Russian Federation and by large communities in Turkey, Syria, and Jordan.
We refer to Kumakhov 1989 and Grammatika kabardino-ãerkesskogo literaturnogo jazyka (1957) for more comprehensive studies of Kabardian
nominal and verbal morphology.
