    Forest Enets has two caritive derivations (Sorokina 2010: 148–150; Siegl 2013: 170–172) which, so far, were covered comparatively shallowly. The central task of this study is to delimit the morphosyntax of the verbal -ši and the nominal caritive -šuđ derivations with a short note on functionally and etymologically similar categories in Tundra Enets and Tundra Nenets. Furthermore, the morphosyntactic properties of the Forest Enets nominal caritive will be discussed with special reference to other participant-oriented adjuncts (Himmelmann & Schultze-Berndt 2005) such as essive, benefactive and comitative derivations.

    The purpose of this article is twofold: first, to give an overview of the morphological and areal variation of the Saami deverbal inchoative suffixes (North Saami -goahti- and -šgoahti-), and second, to give an updated account of the history of said suffixes. To achieve the latter, a critical survey is made of previous literature dealing with these Saami suffixes as well as the phonetically and semantically similar derivational suffixes in Mordvin (Erzya -kado-, -gado-) and in Veps and Ludic (-gande-, -škande- ~ -gade-, -škade-). Several kinds of etymological cognate or loan relations between these suffixes have been posited. In the present paper, however, it is argued that the Saami -goahti- suffix is not related to other Uralic suffixes, but instead results from the affixation of an independent verb (North Saami boahtit ‘to come’). The -š- element attaching to the suffix is explained as a remnant of another derivational suffix still found as an independent inchoative marker -ahtja- present from South Saami up to Lule Saami.
