Linguistic Field: Syntax
Subject Language: Edo
Abstract: This paper aims at analyzing the internal structure of the Ẹdo NP. It identifies the noun (̀eǹi) as the head of the NP and characterizes it in its various manifestations. The crux of this paper is on the agreement pattern in the NP in particular, and the basic clause in which it occurs in general. Nominal items constantly interact with a variety of other items in the Ẹdo basic clause.

The occurrence of these items is usually controlled by a number of agreement features such as Spec-Head Agreement relations or Phi-features which help Subj-Verb to prevent unacceptable and ungrammatical strings.

This paper also explains why certain derivations occur in the form they assume. Both morphological and semantic agreement patterns affecting the NP constituent of the Ẹdo basic clause are examined.
