DerivationsEdit

Noun–Verb PairsEdit

One of the more common correspondences between noun-verb pairs is that of coordinate cognates: nouns that ended in one of { *-as *-is *-us } will most frequently have a verb formed directly from the same root that is respectively either earthy, solar or lunar. This is visible in coordinated pairs such as ‹náppës :: náppal› (fetters :: to bind) and ‹gáirïs :: gáirul› (river :: to flow).

Many noun roots without a nominal suffix that corresponds to a verbal equivalent have verb analogues with ablaut; a common alternation is <a — u> (noun-to-verb), as with <bárë :: búrul> (incision :: to draw).

Noun-to-Verb DerivationsEdit

All productive Bäladiri N→V derivational suffix complexes are bi- or trisyllabic and have a monosyllabic 'core' and a thematic vowel; some non-productive suffixes remain that are monosyllabic or that have four or more syllables. All suffixes cause a stress shift and accompanying lenition.
