Abstract

This article demonstrates, from morphological and syntactic facts, the existence of serial verbs in Baoule. The analysis illustrates the difference between serial verb constructions, simple conjoined verbs, and auxiliary verb/nominalized verb constructions. The author proposes that serial verbs do not constitute a homogeneous category in Baoule. In order to deal efficiently with serial verbs, it is necessary to combine morphosyntactic features with lexical information.
