dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the six irregular Latin verbal paradigms in their present and future tenses, attempting to explain their irregularity. The forms are traced from their Proto-Indo-European roots through Proto-Italic and Old Latin into their classical forms, with considerable analysis based in both phonology and analogy provided. The copula, in particular, is examined in a number of Indo- European languages, and explanations for irregularity in analogy, haplology, and poetic elision are explored.
