The morphosyntax of detransitive suffixes -þ- and -n- in Gothic

by Seiichi Suzuki | 01 July 1989
Hardback
Category: Other Books
This book investigates the interaction of the morphology and syntax of some deverbal suffixes in Gothic in synchronic and diachronic perspectives. The suffixes under examination include: the past participle forming suffixes -pa-/-na-, the fourth class weak verb forming suffixes -no-/-na-, and action/state noun forming suffixes -pi-/-ni-. Demonstrating 'detransitivization' to be a primary function underlying these suffixes, the book presents a principled explanation for the systematic interrelationship among the suffixes in formal and functional dimensions.
