Syntactic innovation processes in Nigerian English
Año del Documento
ES: Revista de filología inglesa, 2006, N.27, pags.61-74
This study investigates the syntactic features of Nigerian English which have been created through the following processes - the use of subjectless sentences, reduplication, double subjects, Pidgin-influenced structures, discourse particles, verbless sentences, and substitution. It observes that the fact that some features of Nigerian English syntax are shared by other new Englishes is a healthy development for the identity of non-native varieties around the world. It finally recommends the codification of the new norms into variety-specific grammars and a common grammar of new Englishes.
