In my master thesis, I analyze Tula's system of noun classification with regard to synchronic description as well as historical reconstruction. Tula is one of the few languages that shows a system of noun classification with prefixes and suffixes. My presentation focusses on these classifying prefixes in Tula and their role in the general picture of noun classification. Besides a formal and functional description, the presentation will also touch upon historical assumptions that consider other languages of the Tula-Waja group as well.
