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.
