Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses various combinations of applicative suffixes with other suffixes. It focuses on the suffixes that can occur both before and after the applicative suffixes. The chapter also discusses reflexive and reciprocal suffixes; causative and non-control suffixes; lexical suffixes; and, the indefinite object suffix. It then turns to the discussion of two co-occurring applicative suffixes. The two-way typology leads to certain expectations regarding the co-occurrence of applicatives with other suffixes. For example, one expects to see relational, and not redirective, suffixes following intransitive suffixes. The chapter concludes that many Salish suffixes, including reflexives, reciprocals, lexical suffixes, causatives, and applicatives, are compositional in nature. This is not to imply that all Salish verb morphology is compositional. Some suffixes appear only once per verb and thus are best treated as templatic.

Keywords:applicative suffixes; indefinite object suffix; lexical suffixes; non-control suffixes; reciprocal suffixes; Salish
