Abstract. By Jean Robert Opgenort, 1999. Paper presented at the European Project on Himalayan Languages. Rijksuniversiteit Leiden, The Netherlands, 18 June 1999.
In this presentation, I will introduce a formal and semantic characterization of the Ombule marker <=ya ~ -i ~ -e>.This marker can be added to the following types of word classes:
Lexical items which contain marker <=ya~-i~-e> are generally translated into Nepali by means of the word pani ‘too, also’. This marker may examplify a general pattern with respect to the dependent elements in Ombule that morphophonological simplification or reduction is accompanied by a change in morphological status, i.c. clitic /ya/ becomes affix /i, e/.
