Tense and Aspect in Nigerian Pidgin

Joseph Osoba

This book is a study of tense and aspect in Nigerian Pidgin. The structural and textual patterning of tense and aspect in Nigeria Pidgin is explicated based on the earliest versions of Chomsky`s transformational generative grammar with the aim of providing a platform for the application of latter theories including government and binding principles and X-bar syntax.
