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 identified. In chapter six, major findings of the study have been summarized and conclusions are made on the basis of these findings.
