Complementation of Hausa Aspectual Verbs.
Yalwa, Lawan Danladi
Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, v19 n1 p185-215 1994
This paper describes and analyzes the complementation patter of Hausa aspectual verbs, examining some instances of aspectual verb complementation that have not been addressed in previous research. It attempts to show that, syntactically, the phenomenon of Control in this type of complementation exists in Hausa. It demonstrates that the relationship between the embedded subject and that of the matrix predicate can be analyzed as involving either that of Control or Raising. Contains 28 references. (MDM)
