neither do i. i like reduplication. i can see that these ones are quite
elaborated but trying hard to figure out i don't get what they mean :
> NS NP VI VC LX
> Minimal so sosu sorsu sorosu so(ru)
> Reduced ame arme amre amare ame(r)
> Regular taki tatki takti takati taki
> Extended moru motru mortu morotu moru(t)
> NS - Noun Singular
> NP - Noun Plural
> VI - Verb Instant (or complete)
> VC - Verb Continous
> LX - The way the root is presented in the lexicon.
so you derive a verb from a noun or reversely ?
but then how ? do you derive verbs from nouns of agent, patient,
instrument, process, result, etc ? or is it the reverse ?
for instance would you derive "to dig" from "digging", "shovel", "ditch",
"digger", etc ? and if you derive a noun from the verb "to dig", is that nou=
"ditch" or "digging" or "shovel" or else ?
arabic uses many different combinations and affixes to precise all that.
how does weneatic handle it ?
