Symposium 2: Extensional Suffixes and Clitics in Igbo

DATE: 10th December, 2010

The extensional suffixes is a term that has been used in Igbo linguistics to classify a number of structures usually suffixed to the Igbo verb. Some of these suffixes express various grammatical notions that are sometimes classified as prepositional, aspectual and so on. Igbo Language Symposium II is an opportunity to address some of those issues.
