Abstract. We define the analogue of $q$-additivity for the canonical number systems in the Gaussian ring of integers. We characterize all those functions $f\colon\zz [i]\to\cc $ which are $\theta =-A+i$-additive and completely multiplicative (Theorem 1). For $\theta =-1+i$ we give all functions which are $\theta $- and $\overline{\theta }$-additive (Theorem 2).
