Presenti in nasale indeuropei tra fonologia e morfologia

  • Davide Bertocci Università degli Studi di Padova


This study aims at focusing on some morpho-phonological problems which affect nasal presents in Indo-European languages. My proposal does not want to be exhaustive, as the theme offers several difficulties in any perspective one can treat it. In detail, I deal with some asymmetries between IE *-nos formations in the nominal domain, and the verb stems built through nasal morphology, and I argue for an etymological relation between them.


KEYWORDS: Indo-European, verbal morphology, nasal infixes, word-formation, reconstruction
