The lexical category debate in Salish and its relevance for Tagalog

Karsten Koch / Lisa Matthewson
Published Online: 2009-07-15 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/THLI.2009.007


We review some morpho-syntactic contexts where, parallel to data in Tagalog, Salishan languages famously fail to distinguish the categories noun and verb. Nevertheless, we then show that Salish languages do distinguish noun from verb, both lexically and syntactically, and suggest how similar analyses might perhaps be applicable to Tagalog.
