Chapter One


1.1 General Background

The main focus of this research work is a discussion on the aspects of ‘Bura’ question formation. This chapter therefore, aims at introducing the work by discussing some historical facts about the Bura people and the language itself.

The research method used the language helpers. Justifications for the study, as well as the scope of the work are also examined in this chapter. The chapter will also give information on the genetic classification of Bura language and then attempt a brief review of our chosen frame-work, the Government and Binding theory.

1.2 Historical Background

The Pabir and the Bura are ethnically different, but they both speak the Bura language. They are the major tribes in Biu and Shani local government areas. The population of the Bura is over 250,000. Apart from Bura, they also speak Housa, Chibok and Marghi. A few speak Fulfulde.

The Bura lived northern Biu before being attacked by Yamta-ra-wala around the 16th century. The few people Yamta brought with him inter-married with the Bura and built up the Biu dynasty into a kingdom. Those descended from Yamta’s group were called Pabir (Babur). This is why the Pabir and Bura differ considerably in culture and appearance.

Until today, the Pabir are the ruling class among Bura, and all the Bura Villages pay tribute to the Emir of Biu. The Bura still resent the Pabir.

The geographical location of Bura land is located on the Biu Plateau, which are highlands in northeastern Nigeria, covering an area of approximately 2,000 square miles (5,200 square km) with an average elevation of 2,300 feet (700m).The plateau’s highest point is Wiga Hill (2,693) feet (821m) and its most prominent relief features are the many well defined, extinct volcanic cones.

Modern-day Bura live throughout Nigeria, their ancestral home can be found in the shaded areas on the Nigeria map.
