Chapter Summary

A good number of morphemes that function either as adjectives or as adverbs or as both have a verbal base. This reveals the central place that the verb roots command in the lexical and grammatical patterning of Rabha. The verb roots are versatile entities that can be moulded and dressed by various morphological processes to play varied roles. At the same time, derived adjectives and adverbs that have a verb root as their basic component do not exhaust the entire set of morphemes that play the adjectival and adverbial role. There is an extensive set of non-derived and indeclinable morphemes that are mostly adverbial in character.

Keywords: adjectives; adverbs; indeclinable morphemes; Rabha; verb roots
