about

This is the first book on the syntax of the Niger-Conger language family, which includes most of the languages of sub-Saharan Africa. Aboh, who is a native speaker of one of the languages (Gungbe) discussed, analyzes different aspects of the syntax of the "Kwa" language group. Aboh alsosuggests how grammatical pictures for these languages can shed some light on Universal Grammar in general.

"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
