Abstract

The aim of this paper is to show the alternation pattern of verbs in Telugu. The work is guided by Beth Levin’s work on English verb classes and alternations where English verbs are classified semantically according to their argument structure. There is a strong belief that the semantic nature of verbs is largely dependent on its argument structure. The nature of the Telugu verbs shows that along with the argument structure, attention should also be paid to the phonological changes which influence the morphological paradigms. Preliminary attempts have been made to class the simple verbs of Telugu into different morphological paradigms along with the changes. At present I am concentrating only on verbs of Communications.
