ABSTRACT



 



This study
compared noun phrase in Nigerian Pidgin (NP) and the English language. It was
noted that NP developed as a contact language due to trade interaction with
European explorers and eventual colonial masters. Researches have shown the
dynamism and complexity of the NP and have sought to establish grammatical
structures for the NP sentence. This study was based on the already established
forms and functions of the noun phrase in English language. Direct translations
of English sentences into NP were made and the comparison carried out. It was
concluded that noun phrases in NP followed a similar morphological pattern as
that obtained in the English language but differed syntactically
