Title: Making Verbs Happen
Subtitle: Interviews on Greek Verb Endings
URL: http://lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: Languages of the World 43
Description:

The aim of this study is to give the semantic profile of the Greek verb-deriving
suffixes -íz(o), -én(o), -év(o), -ón(o), -(i)áz(o), and -ín(o), with a special account
of the ending -áo/-ó. The patterns presented are the result of an empirical
analysis of data extracted from extended interviews conducted with 28 native
Greek speakers in Athens, Greece in February 2009. Rochelle's Lieber's (2004)
morphological system is used as a theoretical framework.

The analysis suggests (i) a sign-based treatment of affixes, (ii) a vertical
preference structure in the semantic structure of the head suffixes which takes
into account the semantic make-up of the bases, and (iii) the integration of
socio-expressive meaning into verb structures.
