ABSTRACT

 

Privative marker for verbs in Turkish is the suffix /-mA/. One of the basic rules in Turkish morphology is that two suffixes with same phonetic structure and with same function cannot be used consecutively, side by side.
This paper discusses the /-mAz/ participle marker, consisted of /-mA/ privative marker and the /-r/ aorist marker’s /-z/ variant in the negative, and the /-mA/ privative marker that comes before it. Turkish National Corpus (TNC) is used as a source for this research.
As a result of the researches made on TNC, it is concluded that the /-mA/ + /-mAz/ markers cannot be present at the end of the words. Thereby, this paper contains the results of the research made on TNC of the /-mA/ + /-mAz/ + /-lİk/ structure.

Keywords: corpus linguistics, Turkish corpus, privatives, double privatives, morphology.
