520    This dissertation studies Mongolian verb morphology on the
       basis of the Modern Mongolian (Inner Mongolia) materials. 
       It is based on the descriptive and theoretical advances 
       made in modern linguistics and provides extensive analysis
       of the key issues concerning verb morphology with regard 
       to the Mongolian situation. The dissertation consists of 
       seven chapters, but the main concern of the thesis is 
       essentially twofold, the derivational and inflectional 
       morphemes of the verbs 
520    The first section presents a discussion of verb derivation,
       focusing on the issue of the verb derived by suffixation. 
       The second part is a discussion of the inflectional 
       categories of the verb. In this section, we deal with 
       several issues, such as converb, auxiliary, tense, aspect,
       mood, voice, and the causative. Converbs can be divided 
       into contextual and specialized converbs by semantic 
       criteria and each of these converbs expresses particular 
       circumstantial meanings. The auxiliary in Mongolian is 
       generally used either to place the situation described in 
       the sentence with reference to time (tense), to ascribe a 
       temporal contour to it (aspect), or to assess its reality 
       (modality). The tense categories in Mongolian distinguish 
       the non-past and past tenses. We examine in depth the 
       meanings and functions of the various tense morphemes 
520    There is no salient inflectional morpheme for marking 
       either the opposition of the perfective and imperfective 
       aspects or the perfect in Mongolian, but there are several
       kinds of single form or compound structure for signaling 
       the sub-classes of imperfective and perfect. Mood and 
       modality in Mongolian can be expressed in different ways, 
       our discussion is, however, restricted to modality 
       expressed through verbal morphology only and some 
       auxiliary verbs which express mood. Voice includes active,
       passive, and reciprocal voices. In this section, we 
       present some detailed description of the meanings and 
       functions of voice suffixes. In the discussion of the 
       causative construction, we reveal some characteristic 
       features of the causative in terms of the relationship 
       between the causer and causee
