"Xgabe" tankerako hitz elkartuak

Xabier Alberdi, Julio García, Iñaki Ugarteburu


One of the means that the Basque language has to signify "lack of" is the use the affix gabe. Although it could be considered as a suffix of derivation, it seems that in most cases it acts as a second component of composed words. The Basque language continually produces new words of this type; it is, therefore, a productive and living resource. The author provides a precise list of such words in common Basque, together with the phonetic and dialectal variants of the mentioned affix. On the other hand, a study is carried out of these compound words, their current use and the concrete limits of the composition, together with the imprecise limits between their composition and syntactic structure.
