It should be noted that classes 2, 5 and 7 are plural classes while the rest are singular. Thus, class seven (7) is different from class (3) three which is a singular class, though they both bear the prefix ǝ̀. The last class (9) has no noun prefix.

Sequential Pronouns in Nkwen Language

The sequential Pronoun is noticed in Nkwen Language when a person carries out a series of activities in a sequence or serially. For Example

Ləm à ghə ŋkha ədzͻ̀, mbû nsû, nti’i nniŋə a məme àkaŋə ŋkwusə.  (Lem went and harvested plums, came back, prepared it, put it in a dish and covered.)

The sequential markers m, n and ŋ,  as illustrated above refer to the same person  “Ləm”.  Without these markers the sentence cannot be coherent. Thus there is a degree of cohesion between these markers and the person for several verbs in a sequence.
