Abstract


<b>The Morphological Reduction Trigger <i>Moet</i> and the Dictionary</b>

The Afrikaans auxiliary verb <i>moet</i> ("must") can, within certain contexts, act as a trigger for the morphological reduction of a compound main verb of the sentence without changing the semantic content of that sentence (a condition, in fact, for all morphological reduction). The circumstances under which this occurs are examined, and lexicographical evidence and implications are discussed.

<b>Keywords:</b> agent, auxiliary verb, card collection, compound main verb, <i>dat</i>-resumption, determiner, lexicography, main verb, negation, non-reducible, reduced sentence, reducible, reduction, reduction result, reduction to the left, reduction trigger, sentence context, syntax, utterance situation, verb inversion
