Morphology and Its Demarcations: Selected Papers from the by Wolfgang U. Dressler, Dieter Kastovsky, Oskar E. Pfeiffer,

By Wolfgang U. Dressler, Dieter Kastovsky, Oskar E. Pfeiffer, Franz Rainer, Francesco Gardani, Markus A. Pöchtrager

The papers during this quantity derive from the overseas Morphology assembly (Vienna 2004) and have been chosen simply because they tackle the most subject of the convention: exterior and inner demarcations of morphology. The exterior demarcation among syntax and morphology is handled within the papers via Rood, Cysouw, Milićević, Blom, Enrique-Arias, and Heine & König. Demarcations of inflection and derivation are mentioned within the contributions through Ricca, Lloret, Manova, Say, Žaucer, and Stump. unlike theoretical discussions in prior literature, that have focused on the interior boundary among inflection and derivation, this quantity attributes equivalent significance to the demarcations among derivation and compounding, addressed within the contributions by way of Bauer, Booij, Štekauer, Fradin, Amiot, and Scalise, Bisetto & Guevara.

Diachronic problems in phonosymbolism

Phonosymbolism, or sound symbolism (Lautsymbolik), is a crucial factor of language development. Many critical students, even though, have appeared it with embarrassment or indifference. A wary reintroduction of phonosymbolism as an element answerable for adjustments passed through, in various levels, by means of such a lot languages might now appear to be so as.

This kind of structure is illustrated schematically in (1). In these structures, the clitic host X is structurally and functionally highly variable. In contrast, the constituent Y on the other side of the clitic is structurally either a particular lexical class or a particular kind of syntactic phrase, and functionally is clearly related to the clitic. I will call this constituent Y the clitic’s attractor. In such cases, the clitic appears to be attached morphologically on the wrong side. Functionally, the clitic belongs together with Y, yet it is attached morphologically to X.
