An inventory of diminutive suffixes along with conjugative suffixes and infinitival
endings as listed in Baric et al.
When answering the research questions proposed here, neighborhood density of infinitival
forms (all the words generated by the addition, deletion or substitution of a single phoneme) will be manipulated to determine whether neighborhood effects in regular and irregular verbs can be observed.
31) If the complement of a main predicate denotes future and will definitely happen (or will not happen), the complement cannot take an infinitival
To form complex predicate, it must not be an infinitival
multiple negation; a free-form negative marker na(e); relative at (shared by a large number of varieties); the non-existence of for to in infinitival
purpose clauses; the non-existence of non-standard use of them and us; the use of pronominal gender; special systems of reflexive pronouns; special uses of yon, the definite and indefinite articles; the non-existence of double comparatives/superlatives.
For example, bare infinitival

Similarly, modals started to appear in combination with infinitival
verb forms, past participles began to be preceded by auxiliaries, and irregular forms started to emerge.
3e is the schema for past-tense forms that end in an alveolar and are identical to the infinitival
But the clause boundary before the infinitival
to leaves LDA as the only structure for 28b.
Perhaps this was the motive for omitting the infinitival
to in its verb definitions, but by doing so OACD loses an essential signal of verbness, without which it can take a moment for the brain to sort out whether one is dealing with a verb or a noun.
