Case compounding in the Bodic languages
Case compounding, which can be defined as the inclusion of two or more case markers within a phonological word, has received a certain amount of attention in the literature in recent years, in particular the phenomenon known as Suffixaufnahme [e.g., in Plank 1995a] and the various sorts of case compounding in Australian languages, some of which manifest Suffixaufnahme and other types of case compounding. There has been relatively less attention paid to the phenomenon outside of these two areas of research. This paper is an attempt to rectify the situation somewhat by presenting a general typology of case compounding, followed by a detailed analysis of the phenomenon in the Bodic languages, a section of the Tibeto-Burman family.
