On Two Derivational Phenomena in Judeo-Spanish

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two phenomena in the derivation of words in Judeo-Spanish are presented here:
a. e-o vowel alternations within the stem; b. morpheme prefixation of a- and ento base stems. The vowel alternation can be explained by historical, etymological and sociolinguistic factors together with dialectal and literary preferences. The prefixation continues Hispanic trends, but shows innovations in JS that apply to Hispanic as well as to non-Hispanic stems.
