CHAPTER ONE

1.0   INTRODUCTION

1.1   BACKGROUND OF STUDY

It can either be called nominal phrase or noun phrase. Algeo (1995) observed that nouns along with verbs are a dominant part of speech, and that the semantic content of sentences is borne mostly by nouns. In other words, of all the constituent elements within a sentence, the noun and the verb, nouns especially, are of pivotal importance in English language.

The syntax of a basic English sentence involves the Subject, Verb and Object or Complement and the forms of both the Subject and the Object and Complement are almost always nouns/pronouns or noun phrases. English has a variety of noun phrases, which differ greatly in structure.

 The English noun phrase can be described as a word group with a noun or pronoun as its head. Hence, it can comprise more than one word and/ or even a clause, where the interactions within the elements in the noun phrase are emphasized by the function of the head and its dependents.

 In the noun phrase, dependent determiners (pre-modifiers and post-modifiers) are defined as lexical category. They include the articles and words traditionally classified as adjectives and pronouns. But some adjectives and most nouns found in this category are referred to as performing attributive functions similar to the grammatical level of a clause analysis (McArthur, (ed.) 1998).

The style of writing employed by authors distinguishes their writing as unique from one another as they convey purpose and perspective through their choice of words. Style, according to Strunk, William, and White, E. B. (2000) is the manner in which writing is packaged to project the specific context and purpose to the audience. This means that the author’s word choice, sentence fluency, and his/her voice all contribute to the style of a piece of writing.

Cali & Bowen (2003) explain that how a writer chooses words and structures sentences to achieve a certain effect is also an element of style. Prolific writers are concise and precise, getting rid of wordiness and selecting the exact word to convey meaning. Skilful choice of exact words such as active verbs, concrete nouns, and specific adjectives on the part of the author goes a long way in helping the reader to picture or imagine the meaning intended by the author correctly. Good writers will also use adjectives in moderation and instead of using adverbs frequently allow nouns and verbs to do the expression of their thought or idea. These usages produce different effects in texts.

1.2   STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The study on nominal phrase will try to identify the phrase pattern in spoken language of ijeshia because most other researchers have carried out series of studies on Nominal phrase but not even a single research has been carried out on nominal phrase in Ijesha.

  1. to determine the phrase pattern in Ijesha language.
  2. to determine the factors affecting nominal phrase pattern in Ijesha language.
  3. to determine the difference in inclusion of phrase pattern in Ijesha language.
  4. to examine the difference in absent of phrase pattern in Ijesha language.
  5. to proffer possible solution to the stated problems.

1.4   RESEARCH QUESTIONS               

  1. What is the influence of nominal phrase in Ijesha?
  2. What is the factor affecting nominal phrase in Ijesha?
  3. What is the difference in inclusion of phrase pattern in Ijesha language?

H1:         Nominal phrase has a significant effect on Ijesha language.

1.6   SIGNIFICANCE OF STUDY

The study on nominal phrase will be of immense benefit to the entire Ijesha citizens in the sense that it will enable them to use the right noun phrase in their speech and also in writing for a better communication  to take place, it 

1.7   SCOPE OF STUDY

The study on nominal phrase is limited to the Ijesha language only.

1.8   LIMITATION OF STUDY

Financial constraint- Insufficient fund tends to impede the efficiency of the researcher in sourcing for the relevant materials, literature or information and in the process of data collection (internet, questionnaire and interview).

Time constraint- The researcher will simultaneously engage in this study with other academic work. This consequently will cut down on the time devoted for the research work.

 

1.9   DEFINITION OF TERM

Nominal Phrase.     A noun phrase or nominal phrase (abbreviated NP) is a phrase which has a noun (or indefinite pronoun) as its head, or which performs the same grammatical function as such a phrase.  Noun phrases often function as verb subjects and objects, as predicative expressions, and as the complements of prepositions.
