This book represents in many important respects a completely independent approach to Yoruba grammar. It attempts to present the Yoruba language as it really is, rather than as seen hitherto, largely from the perspective of other languages. Thus in it, the major parts of speech of the language are, for the very first time ever, established uniformly on the criterion of function alone. An entire chapter is devoted to a systematic, frequently novel but unexhaustive treatment of each such part of speech, one to the wide array of sentence types in the langauge (some of them hitherto universally overlooked) and two, to its sounds and the way they are combined in words. Each chapter ends with comprehension questions and exercises.
