Abstract:

Ajagbe is a Gbe language spoken by approximately 500,000 people in
southwestern Benin and southeastern Togo. Little research has been done on
Ajagbe.

This grammar begins with the phonemic inventory of the language and an
overview of the phonology. It contains chapters on: different parts of
speech, including nouns, pronouns, verbs and modifiers; morphological
processes such as reduplication, derivational affixes, and compounding; and
syntax, including tense, mood and aspect markers, clausal structures and a
brief overview of serial verbs. Also included is a Swadesh word list.

The fieldwork for this grammar was conducted from 2007-9 when the author
was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Klouekanme, Benin.
