Abstract: This thesis is an in-depth study of verbal morphology in Luganda, with a focus on derivational morphology. In it I explore subject and object marking, inasmuch as they relate to derivational morphology, but concentrate on Bantu verbal ‘extensions’ (such as causatives, applicatives, reciprocals, etc.). This work is the first of its kind in providing an expanded account of Luganda’s verbal morphology, while tying in current morphological and phonological theory to explain the particular points of interest in Luganda, especially the problem of accounting for affix ordering and unusual allomorphy.
