Abstract

Affixation is the most productive method of word-forming in the Dari language. Among the affixes that form the adjective, the suffix ی -i ( یای نسبت yâ-ye nesbat) has a special place: it has an unlimited valency, which is explained by the categorical meaning characteristic of adjectives. In the modern Dari language, the functions of the suffix ی -i has expanded: it has become more actively used in the expression of agent nouns. Furthermore, in contrast to nouns, the characteristic feature of adjectives is the productivity of prefixal word-formation. Lack of characteristic, contained in a word-formation basis, is achieved by using the negative prefixes بی bê-, نا nâ-, نه na-, لا lâ- and بلا belâ- The article explores the relationship of the possibility of word-formation with the reasons and regularities of productivity / non-productivity, high productivity / low productivity of word-formation of adjectives based on materials in the Dari language.
