Choctaw Morphology.
Nicklas, Thurston Dale
This paper provides an analysis of Choctaw morphology based on the orthographical system described by the same author (See FL 002 864). The author begins with a discussion of the articles, cases, and conjunctions of Choctaw, considering their forms and uses. A consideration of independent and dependent personal pronouns follows and forms the basis for the analysis of other elements in the language. The various series of dependent pronouns, operating as affixes, combine with other parts of speech to complete the meaning of a form. The author discusses the role of the dependent pronouns in nouns, adjectives, and verbs, while illustrating characteristics of the types in each of these forms. The consideration of the verb involves a discussion of participles and causatives as well as a system of verbal infixes. The final topic concerns commands and exhortations. Morphophonemic changes are considered through out the discussion. (VM)
