This chapter is organised into sections that broadly group together a variety of syntactic phenomena. It begins by examining various phenomena relating to verbs, starting with broad issues relating to verb forms, and then turning to modal verbs in particular, the expression of negation, and verbal agreement. The chapter then discusses different ways in which New Zealanders can talk about possession, and concludes by examining the use of pronouns, adjectives, and adverbs.
