[en] This paper focusses on verb-based nominalization in Harakmbut (isolate, Peru), which falls into two formal types on the basis of the prefix used. The first type, using the nominalizing prefix wa(ʔ) , is restricted to participant nominalization and is predominantly used to produce nouns for NP-use. The second type, using the nominalizing prefix e(ʔ) , is mainly used for event nominalization and typically produces multi-word nominalizations. Depending on the constructions they occur in and additional suffixation they take, nominalizations with e(ʔ) can serve complementation as well as adverbial functions. Across the two formal types, multi-word nominalizations combine NP-like external syntax with verb-like internal syntax. The two nominalizing prefixes also serve a basic function in noun-based nominalization, lending independent status to obligatorily bound nouns.
