Abstract

This paper seeks to draw attention to the grammatical functions of affixation in Agwuagune and its relevance in the grammatical analysis of the language. The process of affixation will be examined under such verbal categories as negation, tense and aspect. Related nominal categories like number and person will also be investigated. The paper concludes with the generalization that affixes are useful grammatical units that mark phonological, morphological as well as syntactic relationships in the language.
