This thesis examines the use and construction of the verb in the spontaneous speech of Nigerian university graduates (NUGs), in both Standard English (StdE) and Nigerian Pidgin English (NPE). Sociolinguistic interviews were conducted with 30 male NUGs. Subjects were from the three major ethnolinguistic groups in Nigeria (Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba from the regions associated with those groups) and they were living in major cities of their own regions. Interviewees moved between Standard English (StdE) and Nigerian Pidgin English (NPE).
