This book looks at two controversial issues in linguistics today:
the status morphemes as either derivational or inflectional, and
the place of morphology in the grammar of a language. Drawing data
from Gikuyu, a Bantu language, the study argues that verbal
extensions in the language are largely derivational and suggests
some criteria that would give more accurate results concerning the
said distinction. On morphology, it is argued that it should not be
subsumed under syntax since syntactic theories do not always fully
account for empirical morpho-syntactic phenomena.Alternative
analysis is suggested in some cases. The book offers useful
linguistic insights to university students and linguists interested
in descriptive and theoretical issues in morph-syntax in general
and Bantu in particular.
