Chapter Summary

Certain allomorphic alternations occur in Tshangla which, although they involve an alternation between distinct contrastive phonemes, are non- suppletive and phonologically conditioned. These morphophonemic alternations occur in derived contexts, specifically in the interaction between nominal and verbal stems and their affixes. These alternations and the phonological and morphological contexts which condition them is the subject of this chapter. The various phonological forms of the participial suffixes which may be attached to the verb root, the ground work has been laid for understanding certain morphophonemic alternations which affect these verb forms. Geminate segments, both consonants and vowels, do not occur in monomorphemic contexts. Degemination takes place in one of two possible ways.

Keywords: degemination; morphophonemic alternations; Tshangla verb
