On the Structure of the Qualifier System in Ọ̀kỌ́́-Ọ́́sànyèn
AbstractThe paper identifies the different types of qualifiers in Ọ̀kỌ́́-Ọ́́sànyèn, one of the endangered African languages spoken in Ògòri-Màgóngó Local Government in Nigeria. It also examines and explains in detail the sequential co-occurrence of the qualifiers within the noun phrases. The paper believes that the language still retains the relics of the old patterning of the Qualifier Qualified sequence of the Proto-language to the African languages under the sub-phylum of West-Benue-Congo which it belongs.
