In the realm of “eventology” I compare a number of North American languages from the point of view of showing how a basic and probably universal classification of events, processes, states can enter into the grammar of words and phrases in different by: 1. This is a wonderful addition. The part on morphology is over four hundred pages, with sections on nouns, postpositions, the directional system, adjectives, numbers, and seven chapters on verbs (overview, verb roots, verb prefix position classes, aspectual suffixation, verb theme categories, inflectionally defective verbs, phonological domains).Author: Keren Rice.

    From Proto-Athabaskan *-nαɣ̇αɬ (“ be in one's presence ”). Compare also Navajo anááʼ (“ eye ”). This quasi-verb root is alway bounded with possessive prefixes indicating the subject, like in the phrase shinááł, meaning “I witness” (literally, “it is in my presence”). Root -NÁÁŁ. to . Axelrod describes in detail the Koyukon language s complicated aspectual system with a discussion of verb theme categories and of the function of the system in discourse.
