ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This work explores the interrelated morpho-phonological, syntactfr · and semantic features of the affix -AN- as a reciprocal affix in Xhosa. Chapter II examines the way in which some previous studies on this reciprocal affix -AN- have been handled by earlier grammarians. Chapter III aims at exploring the syntactic and semantic features of the derivative verb stems with -AN-. Chapter IV is a summary of the work done both in syntax and semantics of reciprocal verbs.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Hierdie werk ondersoek die interrelasie van die morfo-fonologiese, sintaktiese en semantiese kenmerke van die byvoegsel -AN- as 'n wederkerige morfeem in Xhosa. Hoofstuk II ondersoek die manier waarop 'n aantal vorige studies oor hierdie wederkerige byvoegsel -AN- deur vorige grammatikas behandel is. Hoofstuk III beoog om die sintaktiese en semantiese kenmerke van die afgeleide werkwoordstamme met -AN- te ondersoek. Hoofstuk IV is 'n opsomming van die werk gedoen in beide sintaksis en semantiek van resiprokale werkwoorde.
