Abstract: he present dissertation is concerned with the complex tonal phenomena found in the Grassfields Bantu languages of Cameroon, specifically the Ngyemb33n [ij-gyem-b5:] language spoken in the Western Province. The primary aim of this dissertation is to present a systematic and explanatory account of various tone and morpheme rules. To facilitate this purpose, an autosegmental phonological theory will be employed to present the tonal phenomena in as explicit a framework as possible. A secondary aim of this dissertation is to account for a wider scope of tonal data than has previously been possible in a Grassfields Bantu language.
