In this paper we analyse a family of compound constructions in Persian that show two interesting properties: (1) they split into two semantic patterns, human agent noun and instrument noun, and (2) they display categorial ambiguity between noun and adjective. The compounds in question, which are… read more

Morphological constructions can be formalized as schemas that specify semantic and formal output properties of complex words. Such schemas impose these output properties on their constituent words through various coercion mechanisms. In this article we focus on coercion-by-override and the… read more
Audring, Jenny, Geert Booij and Ray Jackendoff 2017 Menscheln, kibbelen, sparkle: Verbal diminutives between grammar and lexiconLinguistics in the Netherlands 2017, Lestrade, Sander and Bert Le Bruyn (eds.), pp. 1–15 | Article

These verbs exhibit particular properties that make them interesting for morphological theory. Focussing on Dutch data, this paper sketches… read more

We propose a theory of the lexicon in which rules of grammar, encoded as declarative schemas, are lexical items containing variables. We develop a notation to encode precise relations among lexical items and show how this differs from the standard notion of inheritance. We also show how schemas… read more
