Abstract:
There are two person affix sets in Dení, regular and directed. Regular person affixes may occur with virtually every verb in the language. Directed person affixes can also occur with verbs used in describing water travel or describing actions that reach a short-range goal. Person affixes, verbs to which they are affixed, and some other affixes in their neighborhood undergo morphophonemic changes. Special affixes, which occur only in third person indicate direction of movement on change of location verbs, change of state on process verbs, and dative.
