Defining[edit]

Let's see if I can get this straight: What you're saying is that morphologically, a postbase acts like a suffix, but semantically, it acts like a root by "stealing semantic focus". Does that make sense? Circéus (talk) 19:56, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

yeah, something like that. In Eskimo they're historically verbs that got fused to other roots. ·Maunus·ƛ· 06:10, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
