📙 The Morphosyntax of Complement-Head Sequences: Clause Structure and Word Order Patterns in Kwa by Enoch Oladé Aboh — free pdf


This is the first book on the syntax of a 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 also suggests how grammatical pictures for these languages can shed some light on Universal Grammar in general.
