Query Details

Author:   Elmar Schafroth
Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Linguistic LingField(s):  Morphology
Subject Language(s):  Italian

Query:   I am looking for Italian verbs ending in -acchiare, -icchiare or -ucchiare.
My special interest is focused on verbs of this type which cannot be
found in the dictionaries. If anyone remembers such a nonce formation
of his own or of someone else, eg. ''veducchaire'' (from ''vedere'') or
''sciacchaire'' (from ''sciare''), please let me know.

Thanks a lot
