Abstract

This paper, a contrastive Analysis of Urhobo and English Prepositions highlights some aspects of usage of the Urhobo Prepositions. It is no gainsaying that there has been a dearth of books in Urhobo Language, especially on the grammar of the language. This of course is a teething problem that should be looked into and adequately taken care of. Methodologically, definitions of prepositions will be considered including kinds of prepositions. Since little has been written on Urhobo grammar as earlier said, this paper aims at doing a contrastive analysis of the prepositions (i.e. juxtaposing the Urhobo prepositions which of course would be a very useful material for students of Urhobo Language in all levels of education.
