Abstract: This thesis examined the structural distribution of the markers of auxiliaries in the Ekiti dialect of Yorùbá language. The study made use of the data collected at Ìkòlé-Ekiti in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State. The theory of Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar as propounded by Gazdar et al (1985) was used to analyse the co-occurrence restrictions among the auxiliaries in the dialect. And, a comparative analysis of the markers of auxiliariesin the Ekiti dialect and Standard Yoruba was also made.
