1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY


The most basic purpose of language is communication, and communication can be transactional or interactional. However, different languages have different forms and structures. It is in view of this that the research intends to look at the sentence structures of English and Igarra languages. The studies that have been carried out on the two languages vary a great deal. English language has a lot of materials on studying the sentence structure unlike the Igarra language which was not touched until the twentieth century. Therefore there are few works done on it and most of the materials are in form of seminar papers that have not yet been published.
Nigeria is without question, a multi-lingual society due to the existence of many languages. The number of languages present in Nigeria has been estimated to lie between 360 and 400. Olaofe, I.A.

This is done by looking at the structures of the sentences of the studied languages.
