Ajagbe is a Gbe language spoken by approximately 500,000 people in southwestern Benin and southeastern Togo. Little research has been done on Ajagbe. This grammar begins with the phonemic inventory of the language and an overview of the phonology. It contains chapters on: different parts of speech, including nouns, pronouns, verbs and modifiers; morphological processes such as reduplication, derivational affixes, and compounding; and syntax, including tense, mood and aspect markers, clausal structures and a brief overview of serial verbs. Also included is a Swadesh word list. The fieldwork for this grammar was conducted from 2007-9 when the author was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Klouekanme, Benin.
