Sample text

Here, T forgets to take her juice and asks Mario to get it for her. ’ The verb gi-biya-an would imply that she intended to leave her juice and that it would be her fault that it was not with her. Replacing gi-biya-an with na-biya-an would mean that it was not done on purpose. 5. ' 20 The passive na- in Cebuano can be treated as a "passive"-marking morpheme, as there is comparative evidence that na- passives without the presence of As are fairly widespread especially in northern Philippine languages (Reid 2006; Reid and Liao 2004).

See also Chapter 13 for the discussion of passive constructions in Cebuano. 46 Table 2-8.

Thin-ness' The derivation of more abstract entities further employs the morpheme ka- in addition to the PV suffix -on, as in (27). 14 As also indicated by the English glosses and translations, it is probably a semantic universal that to derive abstract nouns, derivational affixes are only attached to positive adjectives, rather than negative adjectives. as 'high; tall' wala? 'existential negator' Aside from marking voice on verbs, the -an suffix is a productive means of deriving lexical nouns.
