This chapter shows that the split-D hypothesis helps to account for the Gungbe pronouns. The first section discusses current theoretical analysis of the pronominal system cross-linguistically. Extending this analysis to the Gungbe data, the next section demonstrates that the Gungbe pronominal system can be characterized in terms of a tripartition that postulates the existence of strong, weak, and clitic pronouns. The last section concludes the chapter.

Keywords:   split-D hypothesis, Gungbe pronouns, pronominal system, tripartition
