DESCRIPTION: In this textbook, you shall discover the new isiZulu alphabetical logic order embedded in the new noun clusters to help you master the isiZulu prefix vowel and noun cluster system in particular. The vowel sequencing and the morphological pattern of all UZALO words are UBUNTU philosophical principles of balance, fairness, distinctiveness, interdependence, interrelationships and interconnectedness. IsiZulu language is vowel-driven, strictly regulated, extremely systematic and sound-unit oriented.
This well-ordered language has been found to have only twelve (12) noun clusters, six (6) of which are in singular form, four (4) in plural form and two (2) which are exclusively the homes of only nouns that are in mass form. Each of the twelve (12) noun clusters has its own noun concords which enables logical and meaningful communication. Dr. Makhosi Busisiwe Khoza reconfigured isiZulu nouns into systematically determined clusters. There is a rationale behind assigning a particular noun cluster a specific numeric allocation. This is covered in this textbook. This new isiZulu sequential, systematic and methodical noun arrangement is called UZALO Noun Cluster (UZL NC) system.
