PROJECT TOPIC: ASPECT OF QUESTION FORMATION IN ANAAN̄

Project Body:


CHAPTER ONE

1.0                                           INTRODUCTION

            Language is a phenomenon which is open to variations. These variations most times come about as a result of contacts made by speakers of different linguistic backgrounds. Over the years, Linguistics has been defined as the scientific study of language.  However, studying language scientifically entails the study of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics of a language so as to get empirical and sufficient facts/data, carry them out, experiment and process them, then formalize a rule to form linguistically significant generalization about such language.

            The above mentioned levels of linguistics are referred to as core linguistics by YULE in that, they are the level at which the structure of any language whatsoever can be studied, analysed and determined.  Hence in this project work, my main objective is to examine one of the five attested level of language which deals with the arrangement of words (phrases) to form sentences (i.e. SYNTAX). Syntax has been defined by various scholars to fit into their specific research and grammatical theories. According to Essien (1990) syntax is defined as;

…the component parts or constituents of sentences of a language and the interrelatedness these constituents as well as consisting of various phenomena pertaining to the form and organization of sentences in a language: the words of the language, the order in which they occur or must occur and their interdependencies that produce well formed and meaningful sentences constitute the matter of syntax.

            Therefore, this study will focus on question formation and the aspect which deals with how questions are formed/asked.
