Abstract: This dissertation investigates the grammar of Lumun, a Kordofanian language of the Talodi group, spoken in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. The language has an estimated 15,000 speakers. Volume 1 offers a description of the segmental phonology and tone system. It also presents the nominal system of the language as well as verbal inflection. Volume 2 deals, amongst other issues, with pluractionals and the derivation of benefactive, locative-applicative, causative, passive and reciprocal verbs. Other topics include adverbs, conjunctions and question words. The appendices to volume 2 contain some glossed and translated sample texts, as well as a list of ca. 250 basic words.
