Verbal Aspect in Kusaiean and Ponapean. Working Papers in Linguistics, Vol. 5, No. 9.
This paper examines the meaning and functions of the directional suffixes (adverbial expressions of direction) in Kusaiean and Ponapean. It is shown that the directional suffixes have two semantic features of direction and terminus. Depending on the different contexts in which they are used, sometimes only one semantic feature is employed and other times a combination of both features is used. Part 1 is devoted to the study of the Kusaiean suffixes and Part 2 to Ponapean. A number of detailed examples are given, and a list of references is included. (Author/PMP)
