Title:Referent loss in the relative clause of Lɛlɛmi
Abstract:Nominal reference in the Verb is normally a standard feature of Lɛlɛmi. A Subject, when present, exhibits person agreement with the person marker of the Verb. One form of the Relative Clause in Lɛlɛmi, however, circumvents this rule. In this case all person reference is collapsed into a /+nasal/ Relative Prefix and a non-referential tense marker preceding the Verb. Such referent loss in the Verb of the Relative Clause is the topic of this study.
