      In this presentation, Tessa Vermeir will show the different ways of nominalisation in Swo, a bantu language spoken in the Central region of Cameroon. Bantu languages in general make extensive use of the fact that all nouns have a gender (typically at least 8 and sometimes up to 14) when nominalizing verbs: agentive nouns will obtain a different gender than instrument nouns and action nouns. Besides assigning a gender to a derived noun, bantu languages can also require a suffix. Swo derived nouns sometimes do and sometimes don't have a suffix. Lastly, a comparison will be made between underived nouns and derived nouns as to their syntactical behavior.
