Abstract

This article proposes and demonstrates a method for the morphological analysis of Setswana nouns that could be used in the teaching of Setswana morphology. It provides a brief overview of the morphological structure of the Setswana noun in which the different morphemes of the Setswana noun as well as their arrangement are discussed. These morphemes are grammatical morphemes (prefixes and suffixes), roots and stems. Subsequently the proposed technique of analysis is described with suitable Setswana examples. A hierarchical analysis is employed to illustrate the arrangement of the various nominal morphemes. The focus is on the systematic development of appropriate frameworks by means of various arrangement techniques to analyse the probable components of the Setswana noun.

In hierdie artikel word 'n metode vir die analise van Setswananaamwoorde voorgestel wat in die onderrig van Setswanamorfologie gebruik kan word. 'n Kort oorsig van die morfologiese struktuur van die Setswananaamwoord word gegee en die verskillende morfeme waaruit die Setswananaamwoord bestaan sowel as hul ordening word bespreek. Hierdie morfeme is grammatiese morfeme (prefikse en suffikse), wortels en stamme. Die voorgestelde ontledingstegniek word dan met behulp van toepaslike Setswanavoorbeelde bespreek. 'n Hierargiese analise word gebruik om die rangskikking van verskillende naamwoordelike morfeme te illustreer. Die fokus val op die sistematiese ontwikkeling van toepaslike raamwerke met behulp van verskillende ordeningstegnieke om sodoende die moontlike komponente van die naamwoord te analiseer.
