This dissertation presents a number of Haitian constructions, some of which have so far been left undescribed in the linguistic literature on this language. Special care is devoted to expliciting the interpretive effects associated with the strings generated by the syntax. The Haitian data are drawn from recently-published texts or made up by the author and assessed by himself and other native speakers of Haitian. The body of the text is subdivided into three parts. Part I deals with polarity, TMA and modals. Part II deals with various types of simplex clauses: de-transitivised clauses; reflexive and reciprocal clauses; double-object constructions; serial verbs; questions. Part III deals with the structure and interpretation of noun phrases — bare, simplex, and possessivized.
