Description Class markers in Shona and Luganda (locative class among them) are subject to templatic effects. Specifically, when the root is phonologically heavy, the markers may be absent. The talk looked at such and similar effects, suggested a way of deriving them, and investigated the consequences for categorization and other theoretical constructs.
