Affixation Processes in Izon

Philip O. Ekiugbo Timi V. Ayunku

Languages exhibit different morphological processes, one of which is affixation, a process by which bound morphemes are attached to root words. In the present study, attempt is made to examine the process of affixation in Izon. It seeks to identify the different affixation types attested in the language and their functions; and draws on evidence from data collected from secondary corpus and cross-checked with a native speaker. The study showed that only suffix and interfix are the affixation types found in the language.
