Abstract

This paper attempts to answer three questions having to do with early Austronesian morphology: (1) what were the several functions of prefixes of the shape *ka-, (2) what were the functions of a prefix of this shape when it cooccurred with the sufifx *-an (sometimes referred to as the circumfix *ka- -an), and (3) what prefixes derived verbs with a 'causative' function?
