A COMPARATIVE LINGUISTIC STUDY OF SOME ASPECTS OF NUPE AND ENGLISH MORPHOLOGIES

Abstract:

This thesis is a comparative Linguistic Study of Some Aspects of Nupe and English Morphologies’. The purpose, aims, objectives, justification, scope and limitation of the study were established and an extensive literature review was presented on various morphological processes found in both languages. While some processes were common to both languages, some were not. An eclectic theoretical framework comprising; translation, segmentation of morphemes, scale and category theory of grammatical description of languages and Nida’s six principles for the identification, isolation and analysis of morphemes in natural human languages, was adopted for the purposes of the study. Consequently, therefore, on the basis of the data treated some fundamental, relevant and important findings were made and conclusions were drawn. Finally, suggestions for further researches were offered.
