Dr. Gregory Anderson publishes “Auxiliary verb constructions in the languages of Africa”

Dr. Gregory D. S. Anderson recently published “Auxiliary verb constructions in the languages of Africa” in Studies in African Linguistics. This mammoth 409-page study examines verbs from over 500 African languages! Here is Anderson when he was doing linguistic fieldwork in Nigeria; he is photographed with the ruler of Alesa clan, HRH Emere Emperor John D. Nkpe II, Onch Alesa X (Eleme LGA, Rivers State, Nigeria).
