Abstract: We provide an analysis of the morphology of present indicative auxiliary verbs in Zamudio Basque. In doing so we present an illustration of the theory of Distributed Morphology and the post-syntactic rules that obscure a fairly regular and well-structured syntactically generated auxiliary complex. We provide the inventory of morphemes for ergative, dative, and absolutive agreement and the auxiliary root, and propose a set of morphological operations that interact in a derivation to yield the surface forms of the auxiliary complex. The phenomena under discussion include root allomorphy based on transitivity, co-occurrence restrictions on identical person features, and post-syntactic rules of feature deletion. The resulting model is one in which the intricate distribution of morphemes within the auxiliary complex is regulated by a number of orchestrated grammatical mechanisms.
