Résumé

This article bears on coordinating constructions in Fongbe (Kwa, Benin) and in Haitian Creole. The paper concentrates on the clausal conjunctions bO & bo, which can also function as complementisers, and on the so-called NP conjunction made up of two lexical items: kpodo...kpo 'with...with'. It is shown that, to a large extent, the properties of the Haitian clausal conjunction (e)pi and those of the so-called NP coordinator (kol)ak are similar to those of the corresponding items in Fongbe and that therefore, these properties must have been inherited from Fongbe.
