Chapter Summary

Phasal verbs in Movima (isolate, lowland Bolivia) are verbs with a bipartite stem denoting the beginning or end of a process or event. This chapter describes different types and components such as phasal root, lexical element, and suffix of phasal verbs. It deals with phasal verb constructions, which consist of a bipartite verbal base and usually an additional morpheme that is restricted to this type of stem. The chapter first provides some general information on the grammar of Movima. It then describes the structure of the three morphological types of phasal verbs. Finally, it describes the alternative, subordinating construction, and summarizes the findings.
