GENITIVE SINGULAR OF STEMS ENDING IN STOPS IN MYCENAEAN GREEK

Elena Dzukeska

Abstract


There are only few genitive singular forms of stems ending in
stops on Mycenaean tablets. Still the analysis of the examples shows
that in the Mycenaean period, the genitive singular of stems ending in
stops already had the characteristics typical for the Greek language in
respect of the ending and the root or suffix ablaut grade. On the other
hand, the examples present archaic aspects - words that disappeared in
the post-Mycenaean period and peculiarities in respect of semantics
and word formation.


Key words: GENITIVE SINGULAR, MYCENAEAN GREEK,
STEMS ENDING IN STOPS
