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.

Review:

Aboh argues his positions with care and illustrates with abundant data - two virtues that should make this study of interest and use also for nonminimalist readers. (Silvia Kouwenberg, eLanguage)
