The copulative construction in the African languages of South Africa will be considered within the following framework: firstly, an overview will be given of the various copulas or copulative verbs or the absence of overt copulative verbs in these languages. Secondly, the complements of these copulative verbs will be given as well as an overview of the moods and tenses within which each such copulative may appear. Lastly, attention will focus on the semantics and syntax of these copulative clauses.
