About the Book

The book is about Manipuri verbs. It focuses on the verbal structure and tries to classify Manipuri verbs on semantic level. It also encompasses the verbal affixes on derivative and inflectional level. The book explores some areas which no linguist has ever worked. The area of Manipuri verbs has been incomplete as the earlier works focused on monosyllabic verbal roots. This area has been filled up by this book with the discovering of many verbal roots which are disyllabic and polysyllabic. It also includes the larger construction of Manipuri verbs which are formed by the combination of a noun and verb. Further, it also brings out the verbal compound forms as well as complex verbs. The number of larger constructions excelled the monosyllabic types. The book has also explored reduplicative verbs which displays a unique feature of Manipuri verbs. The book also deals with verbal affixes without which the study of verbs is incomplete. Grammaticalized affixes have been discovered for the first time in Manipuri.
