Abstract [en]

The paper illustrates the stability of bound morphology in the Karaim language. The speakers of this small Turkic language have lived in an asymmetric contact situation with speakers of some Slavic and Baltic languages. Examples are given to show how selective copying has shaped Karaim morphology without introducing new morphemes into the language, i.e. without global copying.
