摘要:

This article describes the various phonological/morphophonemic processes resulting from segmental co-occurrences within simple words (words which constitute a single morpheme) and at morpheme junctures of complex words in the Ezha language. The language is found to be rich in such operations. The morphophonemic processes identified and described in this study include assimilation, labialization, palatalization, depalatalization, vowel fronting, vowel deletion, deletion of a glide and a vowel, epenthesis and spirantization. Among these operations, assimilation is found to be by far the most prominent.
