Description:
Mayogo has several ways in which to express the meaning of ownership or possession within the noun phrase. There is a simple juxtaposition of words, and the use of two different particles, as well as the possessive pronoun. These different constructions will be looked at more closely, together with examples for each. Many of the examples are taken from just one text, ‘The strong-willed goat’, and the numbers refer to which line in the text the reference comes from.
