Abstract:
A proposal for modifying the tagmemic model is here illustrated in the description of the Huixtec Tzotzil verb phrase. Pike's notion of slot-class (Longacre's function-set) is retained, but the close correlation of slot and class as properties of a unit of grammar (the tagmeme) is rejected. An attempt is made to partially specify the form of rules in the lexical hierarchy of Tzotzil, here termed the SEMANTIC COMPONENT. Rules for relating its semantic, syntactic, and phonological components are also presented.
