However, the derivational paradigm of each base is much more complex and analysing it for a study of competition could give new insights to the results.
The alternations originated by purely phonological processes in the course of which former inflexional or derivational morphemes were lost as overt forms and were replaced by zero morphemes (or allomorphs), while the allophones of the stem vocalism or consonantism which had been conditioned by the vowel(s) of the lost morphemes were phonemicised.
Although the past tense forms in certain contexts may acquire an iterative and progressive meaning ([phrase omitted] 2000 : 163), the forms of PST2, including the (V)-person variety, encode the progressive aspect, expressed otherwise by derivational suffixes (see Section 2), e.g.
For instance the word yesil (green) was not included in the original root list, because TLA considers this word as derived as yas (fresh) + il (derivational morpheme).
Morphological generalisations for the derivational suffixes, /ion/ and /ian/
The syntactic features could mean the category features such as noun, verb, adjective, etc or other relations necessary in explaining the syntactic structure of the construction while the diacritic features "include those relevant to the particulars of inflection and derivational morphology.
Inflectional and derivational morphology have been traditionally considered the two domains of morphology; the former is concerned with the "derivation of word-forms from uninflected simple or complex bases", whereas the latter involves the "creation of new lexemes" (Kastovsky 2009: 151).
As is shown in Table 3, ATTs borrowed from SL proper names are solid stems in the sense that they cannot be analysed according to the TL derivational system of root-pattern or the TL inflectional system of gender, number, case and definiteness.
As will be shown in section 4, these are the result of multiple affixation and each one of the involved affixations operates in existent derivational patterns of contemporary Portuguese:
Luisa Garcia Garcia examines the use and morphological status of causative (-jan) verbs, concluding that the pace of change in inflectional morphology is not paralleled in derivational morphology.
Margot van den Berg explores derivational morphology in early Sranantongo, Akan, and Gbe, and Aboh and Smith investigate reduplication in Gbe and the creoles.
Derivational processes are the most common way a new word comes into the English language (Yale, 1996).
This makes it nearly impossible to discern, for instance, the existence of inflectional classes or derivational morphemes in the Kedang lexicon.
In connection with the native speakers' results, Schmitt and Zimmerman conclude that 'the performance of the native speakers indicates a high but less than complete productive knowledge of derivational morphology' (2002: 160).
