dc.description.abstract This thesis is a comparative study of Ewe and English based on the Grammatical categories of Determiners and Aspects. First, it deals with determiners with reference to sub-categories such as articles, demonstratives, pronouns and quantifiers. Second, it explores. the domain of aspects with particular attention to the differences between tense and aspect. The thesis also studies the grammatical categories of present, past and future with emphasis. on perfective and imperfective meanings. In this work, there is a general attempt to see how related the two languages are on structural and semantic levels.At the end of each part, the thesis specifies the contrasts between the two languages, makes an account of possible interfering areas, and analyses how they can help the instructor in teaching English to native Ewe students.
