6. Description Abstract This chapter probes the role of domains in the semantic description of de-verbal suffixes. In the course of the investigation, it attempts to substantiate two principles of CS. One principle is that the meaning of an expression is described on the basis of the domain it evokes. Applying this principle to morphology, I argue that the meaning of a suffix can best be defined by comparing it with other suffixes located in the same domain. Another principle is that the syntax of an expression is a reflection of the construal imposed on its content. Applying this principle to morphology, I argue that the morphological form of a composite adjective is determined by the construal the speaker employs to structure its content. To that end, the chapter is organised as follows. Section 1 reviews the issue of meaning in the main theories of thought. Section 2 introduces the domain approach, highlights its essence and pinpoints its importance to the description of adjectival suffi xes. Section 3 tackles the domain of voice and its morphological instantiations. Section 4 handles the domain of aspect and its morphological instantiations.
