In the preceding data, you see not only single words, but clauses containing multiple words. This means that your lexicon will be, accordingly, larger. As in previous problems identify all of the form-meaning correspondences and provide lexicons containing all the pieces you identify. Provide morphotactic templates for all of the words with complex structure. Finally, specify the order for lexical categories within the clause, i.e., the basic word order pattern.

Unformatted text preview: Question 2: Consider the following data and answer the questions In this data set there are, once again, clauses consisting of combinations of words. Please analyze both the verbal and nominal morphology, identifying all of the correspondences between forms and meanings. List these in a mini-lexicon. Provide the morphotactic patterns used for nouns and verbs. Provide a temoplate for the basic word order of lexical categories in this language. If there is allomorphy, try to identify the nature of the conditioning. Note: the consonants marked with square brackets [n] and [y], are inserted by some phonological rule and can be ignored for purposes of this assignment. Have fun!...
