Abstract: The author explores the linguistic strategy in Somali language which recurs to noun incorporation to ensure a generic-object reading - as there is no object pronoun of 3rd person.
Qoraagu wuxuu falanqaynayaa qayb ka mid ah dhismaha Af-soomaaliga, gaar ahaan arrinta la xiriirta maqnaashaha magacuyaalka layeelaha ee qofka saddexaad (lab & dheddig, keli iyo wadar).
L'autore esplora la strategia linguistica del somalo che ricorre all'incorporazione nominale al fine di garantire una lettura generica dell'oggetto - dal momento che il pronome oggetto di terza persona non è esplicitato.
