Consonantal Morphology In The Chaha Verb, John J. Mccarthy Jan 1983

Consonantal Morphology In The Chaha Verb, John J. Mccarthy

Linguistics Department Faculty Publication Series

In the Gurage (Ethiopian Semitic) language Chaha, erstwhile phonological processes of palatalization and labialization have been morphologized as part of the inflectional system. Specifically, under certain morphological conditions we find palatalization of a root-final velar or coronal obstruent, labialization of the rightmost labial or velar consonant in the root, or a conjunction of these two processes. The most striking aspect of this morphological system is that the labialization and palatalization apply across the board to all copies of a reduplicated root consonant.
