Morphosyntax: descriptive and theoretical approaches on selected Bantu and Chadic languages in Cameroon is essentially intended to furnish the reader with issues of morphology and syntax. However, while the chapter on orthography is significant in harmornising the writing system of Chadic languages in Cameroon, the results of the chapter can also bear on other Bantu language committees, as well as various Bible translation and other local-material development projects. Cameroonians desiring to learn the languages covered in this book will find the book invaluable, especially with the quality of data and the analyses ensuing therein. The student-linguist and seasoned linguists who have a niche for morphology and/or syntax of African languages will find that this book treats interesting morphosyntactic phenomena in selected Bantu and Chadic languages. Also, theoreticians will find that this book reveals a depth of knowledge with respect to the way in which Cameroonian languages fare with theoretical insights.
