Title:Nabay verb morphology
Abstract:

Nabay is an Austronesian language of Sabah, Malaysia. This data paper documents the verb morphology of Nabay with over 500 sample sentences. All verbs are marked for time and focus; further verb affixes may mark mode or aspect. The focus system is the most notable feature of the clause in Nabay. Five nuclear clause elements are eligible to receive focus: Actor, Goal, Referent, Instrument, and Time/Location. In addition to the focus affix on the verb, focus or non-focus may be marked in a noun phrase by special particles or pronoun sets.
