Keywords: particle | aspectual | Gizey

The verb phrase in the Gizey language (N-E Cameroon) may include a centripetal or centrifugal particle (áyà or sáà respectively). These particles have various meanings besides the deictic spatial ones, namely aspectual ( accomplished vs unaccomplished) and evidential meanings and a meaning the Author calls “nomothetic”, since Ego as a reference point may also establish whether a certain event is regular or unexpected.
