Zulu Grammar

Postby Gonzo » 2016-02-17, 7:49

Hi, could someone explain to me what Zulu grammar is like? For instance, is there masculine, feminie and neuter? I'm guessing neuter probably doesn't exist in most African languages - I mostly see them in European languages. What about it's prepositions? I always find those the hardest to pin down in a language. As I understand it, nouns have class stems for singular or plural. Is there any additional complexity, like declensions? Verbs, I get how they are formed, but as for their verb forms, how many are there? Would one say that Zulu is a complex or more simple language? Is it regular or irregular? What about syntax? Basically, I just want to gauge the language before I decide to learn it or not.
