Title:Sentence level construction and participant reference in Waima discourse
Abstract:This paper is in two sections; the first of which looks at multiple clause constructions in Waima, covering juxtaposition, co-ordinate and subordinate conjunctions, complement clauses and direct and indirect speech. It considers the structure and function of Waima conjunctions, and also any role they may play in discourse. The second section turns to the discourse level and considers participant tracking and topicalisation. The different participant types occuring in Waima narratives and the different devices used for tracking these participants are examined in turn.
