Morphology of the Old English noun and the verb traced from pro-ethnic Indo-Germanic by B. K Ray Download PDF EPUB FB2

The grammar of Old English is quite different from that of Modern English, predominantly by being much more an old Germanic language, Old English has a morphological system that is similar to that of the hypothetical Proto-Germanic reconstruction, retaining many of the inflections thought to have been common in Proto-Indo-European and also including constructions characteristic of.

A Grammar of Old English, Volume II: Morphology completes Richard M. Hogg's two-volume analysis of the sounds and grammatical forms of the Old English language. Incorporates insights derived from the latest theoretical and technological advances, which post-date most Old English grammarsCited by: 8.

Morphology and Word Order within the Old English Noun Phrase in Mitchell's interpretation of multiple genitives (see, e.g., section ). Even the premier syntactician of Old English is hindered by the inherent ambiguities of the category. In practice, therefore, the actual recognition of GNPM-NP dependencies involves.

The noun system of Old English was quite complex with 3 genders (masculine, feminine and neuter) and 5 cases (nominative, accusative, genitive, dative, instrumental).

In the history of English this was simplified considerably. The cases were reduced to nominative and genitive and the phenomenon of grammatical gender was lost. Nouns are divided into two main categories of declension in Old English: the so called "Strong" and "Weak" nouns.

There are other minor declension groups, as well; but most nouns fall into these two classifications. If a noun belongs to a particular declension group, it can usually only be declined that way.

English uses a plural morpheme on a noun to indicate that there is more than one of something. But there is a subcategory of nouns that don’t have plural nouns like rice, water, money, oxygen refer to things that aren’t really countable, so the nouns don’t get pluralized. Nouns that refer to abstract things (such as justice, beauty, happiness) behave like mass nouns too.

That is, the mental lexicon also specifies the gram. A system of grammatical gender, whereby every noun was treated as either masculine, feminine or neuter, existed in Old English, but fell out of use during the Middle English period. Modern English retains features relating to natural gender, namely the use of certain nouns and pronouns (such as he and she) to refer specifically to persons or animals of one or other genders and certain others.

Borderline transitive verbs: unergatives. There are some verbs that are intransitive in English (and other languages), but take subjects marked with ergative case, and 'have' auxiliaries in Euskara.

Out of these, we can distinguish two groups. The smaller one. The two branches of morphology include the study of the breaking apart (the analytic side) and the reassembling (the synthetic side) of words; to wit, inflectional morphology concerns the breaking apart of words into their parts, such as how suffixes make different verb forms.

Lexical word formation, in contrast, concerns the construction of new base words, especially complex ones that.
