Abstract:
Romani has a system of synthetic valency-changing morphology to systematically increase or decrease the valency of verbs. Historically, valency-changing suffixes were used to change the valency structure of verbs, to derive new verbaF stems from nonverbal roots, and to integrate loan verbs into the language according to their valency structure. Present-day Romani dialects differ with respect to productivity and functions of the individual morphemes, as well as with respect to the overall productivity of verb derivation by means of synthetic morphology. This dissertation investigates different aspects of the multi-functionality of Romani transitive suffixes in present-day Romani dialects.
