My research project deals with word formation in South Bavarian regional varieties, with special focus on derivational morphology in the dialect of Tyrol. Starting from the analysis of the prototypical Bavarian verbal prefix "der-", which seems to have undergone a considerable expansion of its semantic function (including the development of a modal meaning component), the aim of the project will be to identify other phenomena of derivational morphology within the regional variety, which show a similar semantic progression and could possibly help to gain a better understanding of such a development.
