Some properties of Labrador Inuttut verbal derivation

Some properties of Labrador Inuttut verbal derivation
Pages: 37 - 48

Résumé:

Cet article amorce une discussion du problème de la dérivation de mots dans l'inuttut du Labrador. La méthodologie proposée utilise à la fois l'analyse par ordinateur et le travail de terrain traditionnel. Cette méthode, appliquée à un ensemble d'affixes verbaux déverbalisants permet de formuler un certain nombre de généralisations. La conclusion la plus importante est la suivante: la cooccurrence et l'ordre des affixes verbaux obéissent à des contraintes sémantiques plutôt que syntaxiques.

Abstract:

This paper is a preliminary discussion of the problem of word derivation in Labrador Inuttut. A methodology is proposed based on a combination of computer analysis and traditional fieldwork. This methodology is applied to a set of deverbal postbases with the result tat some initial generalizations can be formulated. Foremost among these is the conclusion that the verbal affixes examined are constrained in their co-occurrence and order by semantic rather than syntactic factors.
