Abstract: In Somali there is an obligatory focus marking system, which appears to have a pervasive influence on the syntax of the language. This paper attempts to show that significant generalizations regarding the formation of interrogative, negative, and negative-interrogative clauses can be captured only with reference to the focus structure of corresponding main declarative clauses.
Af-soomaaligu wuxuu leeyahay nidaam diiradeeye oo khasab ah in loo adeegsado weereynta afka. Qoraalkaani wuxuu muujinaya xeerka guud ee diiradeeyaha loo adeegsado marka weer qiraal gudaheeda laga dhex helo: w. weyddiimeed, w. diidmo iyo weer weyddiin-diidmo.
In somalo c'è un sistema di focalizzazione obbligatorio che sembra avere un'influenza pervasiva sulla sintassi. Questo articolo cerca di dimostrare che si possono effettuare generalizzazioni significative riguardo la formazione di frasi interrogative, negative, e interrogative-negative con il solo riferimento al tipo di focalizzazione presente nelle frasi dichiarative principali corrispondenti.
