Moshi, Lioba [Priva] (1993). Time-stability: the case of adjectives in KiVunjo-Chaga. In Mufwene, S. S. & L. P. Moshi (Ed), Topics in African linguistics, Amsterdam & Philadelphia : John Benjamins Publishing Co.., pp. 141-158.

Notes : The author questions the universality of Givón’s proposed time-stability scale of nouns/adjectives/verbs, according to which nouns denote experiences/phenomenological phenomena that stay relatively stable over time, adjectives do less so, while verbs denote rapid changes in the universe.
