dc.description.abstract This study examines the presence of a copula and fronted copula constructions in Tigrinya (Ethio-Semitic). The aim of this investigation is to outline the distribution of the copula in Tigrinya, to further investigate the function coded by the fronted copula construction, and explore the source of this construction. This study demonstrates that the fronted copula construction marks focus in Tigrinya.
