Abstract:

Yoruba, a major West African language spoken by over twelve million people,
has had so much scholarly attention before the release of this 1966 work, but no
extensive descriptive grammar had ever been published. Dr Ayo Bamgbose
therefore made a major contribution to the study of language. This descriptive
grammar derives from a large body of written and spoken texts in Standard
Yoruba. In order to avoid the faulta of traditional grammars, this study has been
deliberately based on a structural theory, using Halliday's Scale and Category
model. Dr Bamgbose's study of Yoruba was the first full-length exemplification
of this theory to be published, and will continue to be of interest to general
linguists as well as to specialists in West African languages and Yoruba
scholars.
