Abstract

A discussion of the complex segmental morphophonemics of the distant past tense marker /a/ in OluTsootso. Its interaction with other rules and conditions in the language is placed in the perspective of unifying disparate data, demonstrating the power of the paradigm, and avoiding homophony.
