The Morphological Reduction Trigger Moet and the Dictionary. The Afrikaans auxiliary verb moet (""must"") can, within certain contexts, act as a trigger for the morphological reduction of a compound main verb of the sentence without changing the semantic content of that sentence (a condition, in fact, for all morpholOgical reduction). The circumstances under which this occurs are examined, and lexicographical evidence and implications are discussed.
