Bloch, Bernard (1966/47)

Abstract

(= Surrey 13) Notable for the way in which in which the overarticulated forms of the verb ‘to be’ are handled. The verb paradigm is divided into four categories (formed through suffixation): (a) 3sg (b) preterit (c) participle (d) gerund The marking of persons other than 3sg in am, are and was, were is construed as allomorphy, and thus is no basis for postulating additional paradigmatic categories.
