Zahid Akter on a new verb construction in Pangkhua

Hosted by the Sydney Centre for Language Research, Zahid Akter from the University of Sydney presented a seminar on ‘A new future construction from the verb t̪i ‘say’ in Pangkhua’ on 30 July 2021.

Pangkhua is a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Chittagong Hill Tracts, Bangladesh. In this seminar, Zahid Akter explains how a new future construction has evolved from a verb ‘t̪i’ meaning ‘say’, and discusses implications of his research on grammaticalisation theory and on the typology of Tibeto-Burman languages.
