Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Aronoff, Mark (1994)

Abstract

(= Surrey 1) Introduces the notion of the "morphome", namely a purely morphological formative to which morphosyntactic functions may be associated. Syncretism is briefly discussed (pp. 83-84) w.r.t. nominal declension Latin, where it is treated as the result of the disjunctive association of functions with the morphome. Aronoff observes that Latin has stem-bound paradigmatic gaps, i.e. for specific verb lexemes all and only the forms with a specific stem are defective (missing).
