This is This, and Here Are Some Examples: Verbalisers and Extensions in Shona
MetadataShow full item record
After a brief discussion of the scientfic theory, especially in Linguistics, the article explores the scientifically arrived at morphological categories, 'verbaliser', 'extension' in Shona. It reveals existing descriptive accounts of these categories and suggests that if, they were treated as numbers of a single category rather than as they have been treated traditionally, a variety of previously unanswerable questions could begin to be addressed through new research. The proposed recategorisation would treat 'verbaliser' as the less productive members of the set of toneless derivational morphemes which otherwise, consists of 'extension'.
