De l'expression à l'expressivité en morphologie: analyse comparée de la dérivation verbale en zande et en nzakala

Abstract : Ubangi languages have CV(V) verbs. Most of these languages have longer verbs which can be identified, either synchronically or in fossil state, as derivates of CV(V) verbs. The verb derivation suffixes in the Zande group constitute one of the best developed and most productive systems in the Ubangi branch. This paper attempts to discern the original meaning of these suffixes through internal reconstruction and comparison, and to understand how they helped to increase the proportion of verb roots with two or more vowel nuclei in the lexicons of the languages involved.
