The professor of the Faculty of English Language publishes the new scientific article

Professor of the Faculty of English at AAB College Marika Butskhrikidze has published her latest scientific article entitled: “The Status of /m/ in #/m/C Sequences in Georgian”. This study is published in the book: Part II Syllable, Stress, and Sign, edited by Jeroen van de Weijer, Berlin, Boston: De Gruyter Mouton, 2023, pp. 1-18.

Below is a brief summary about this article:

The research takes into account different types of evidence: 1) synchronic constraints on the attachment of consonants; 2) comparative and dialect data; 3) diachronic studies involving /m/C sequences; and 4) reduplication data. Based on the findings, the paper argues that /m/ in #/m/C sequences should be analyzed as a prefix. Henceforth, /m/ and C in #/m/C sequences belong to different morphemes and do not form true clusters. Click here to read the full article.
