Abstract:

New Edition

Originally published in 1970, this is a descriptive linguistic analysis of the 
grammar of modern Igbo. The analysis, based primarily on material gathered 
from two native speakers, one from Owerri Province and the other from 
Umuahia Province, is presented in the framework of the transformational 
model developed by Noam Chomsky. The grammar is a practical attempt to 
apply some of the advances in theoretical linguistics to a little-known 
language. There is no other grammar of Igbo in existence which presents a 
comprehensive descriptive analysis of the underlying and surface systems of 
the syntax and phonology of the language. The book will be useful for 
linguists as an example of the application of the transformational model to an 
exotic language. It will be of interest to specialists in African studies for the 
insights gained and the data presented from an important African language.
