Kinyarwanda, also known as Rwandan, is a national language of Rwanda (along with French and English) and spoken by almost all of the 11 million inhabitants of the country. Kinyarwanda is the second most widely spoken Bantu language after Kiswahili. It is a sister dialect of Kirundi, the national language of Burundi, so Burundians can understand Kinyarwanda well. Kinyarwanda speakers are also found in Uganda, Tanzania and in parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo. There are an estimated 20 million native speakers of Kinyarwanda worldwide. Kinyarwanda has two major dialects: the northern dialect, Igikiga, and the southern dialect, Ikinyanduga, and both have sub-dialects. The differences among these dialects, however, are mainly lexical and phonetic.

Time is the most fundamental category of human cognition and action, and all human languages have developed many devices to express it. These include verbal categories, such as tense and aspect, but also adverbials, particles, and principles of discourse organisation. This book is intended as a tutorial for the study of how time is expressed in natural languages. Its chapters take the reader through a number of foundational issues, such as the various notions of time and the various means to express it; other chapters are devoted to more specific questions, such as the acquisition of time, its modelling in formal semantics and in computational linguistics, or how its expression can be empirically investigated.

Resilience of a Nation

A History of the Military in Rwanda

Rwanda is believed to have emerged around the tenth or eleventh century under King Gihanga, the founder of the prosperous and sovereign nation. Initially, military structures played more of a social role, with their main concern being the preservation of the means of subsistence, other than securing territorial influence. King Gihanga's military formations, for instance, were meant for the security of his family and his economic assets. It is the aim of Resilience of a Nation: A History of the Military in Rwanda to examine the role that the military has played throughout the history of Rwanda to date. We look at the different phases the Rwandan military has undergone, from the traditional, the colonial and immediate post-independence military to the present. It is the premise of this book that, not precluding any political expediencies, it is the military that played the most central sociopolitical role in what became of Rwanda during its heydays when no slave trader could tread its soil, to its lowest moment during the 1994 genocide. It is also the military that led the way in re uniting a shattered people and the country to becoming a democratic state of reputable international standing. It takes stock of the history that led to the rise of the Inyenzi guerrilla movement in the 1960s, and then the Rwanda Patriotic Front and Army in the late 1980s and early 1990s, leading to the pragmatism of the current Rwanda Defense Forces (RDF). Borrowing from the Ingabo z'u Rwanda of old, the RDF today not only ensures security for all, but provides a model of national unity and integration that continues to inform Rwanda's socio-political and economic development.
