Abstract

This paper offers an exhaustive description of the principal parts (Infinitive, Preterite Present and Plural, and Past Participle) of all irregular verbs found in Vilamovicean, a severely endangered Germanic vernacular spoken in Poland. Based upon extensive original field research, the authors offer a complete list of the irregular verbs, dividing them into three main classes: strong verbs (that also include reduplicated and athematic verbs), preterite-present (where the forms of the Present singular and plural are presented) and weak verbs with Rückumlaut.

Keywords: Vilamovicean, German vernacular, endangered languages, Poland, morphology, principal parts, irregular verbs
