When I finished my MA thesis back in 2006 I made it available online as a gesture to the Yoruba community. It used to be available from my site until I changed servers. Then some good soul uploaded it at Scribd, where it continued to draw visits from various Yoruba forums; however, this happened without my permission and the file was out of my control. I asked the uploader to withdraw it so that I could distribute a slightly updated version here. Such requests never work of course, but still I want to try.
Please do not redistribute the PDF file below; instead point people to this page or give them the link
http://ideophone.org/download/the-body-in-yoruba.pdf. That way I can update the file if need be, and everyone can be sure they get the most recent version.
