Negation in Àhàn [Tense, Aspect and Neagation in Àhàn]

In this paper, I look at the syntactic patterns of negatives and negative marking in the Àhàn dialect of Yoruba. I will show that the negators in Àhàn are quite different morphologically and syntactically from what we see in the standard Yoruba. From the fact of the data in Àhàn, I will propose a Negative phrase (NegP) that is different from the standard Yoruba.
