This is about how one might analyze a small piece of Hungarian grammar to get the behavior of preverbs to fall into place. A preverb is roughly the equivalent of the English particle, though the inventory of preverbs in Hungarian is much larger than that of particles in English. All Hungarian preverbs are separable; they are "preverbs" precisely because their canonical position is immediately before the verb. The following presentation takes the form of a narration which has four main parts: crawling, standing, falling, out.
This is a (rather dramatically titled) handout for a talk that I gave in May 1991.
As far as I'm aware, to this day not much has been written about reduplication in Hungarian. The interested reader may want to take a look at Ferenc Kiefer's "Prefix reduplication in Hungarian" (Acta Linguistica Hungarica 43, pp. 175–194, 1995/1996) for a morphosemantic approach that was developed later and independently of my morphosyntactic approach.
