"Very valuable... Aboh's book makes an excllent contribution to the literature in that it presents a superb overview of may properties of the syntax of Gbe languages, which hadn't been given much publicity so far. ...highly recommended to anybody with an interest in African/less studiedlanguages, or in theories of clause structure and word order."--Linguist List
