|Abstract: ||This thesis concerns the morphology of Goggot. The central theme of the study is to give a
base-line description on both the inflectional and derivation properties of Goggot nouns,
pronouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. The paper is organized in six chapters, including
the introductory and concluding chapters.
In chapter one, a brief introduction is given on the linguistic and Scio-linguistic situations of
the language, on the significance and methods of the present study, and on the
morphophonemic feature of the language.
In the next four chapters (2-5), attempt is made to describe both the inflectional and
derivational properties of Goggot nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. In the
description, inflections for such grammatical categories as number and definiteness in
nouns and adjectives; tense, aspect, mood, and AGRS in verbs have been treated. In the
study, it has been identified that case marking is predominately prepositional in GoggOt. In
addition, attempt has been made to analyze the internal structure of Goggot pronouns.
Concerning their derivations, stems from which nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs can be
derived, and the patterns and bound morphemes used to derive these word classes have been
In chapter six, major findings of the study have been summarized and conclusions are made
on the basis of these findings.|
