Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Bobaljik, Jonathan (2002)

Abstract

Bobaljik shows that contrary to the claims made in Williams (1981, 1994) meta-syncretism (inflectional syncretism across different exponents in a given language) does not require explicit paradigms, but can be captured equally well by Distributed-Morphology-style post-syntactic impoverishment rules. Moreover he discusses counterexample to specific restrictions Williams' theory predicts for the relation between different paradigms in single languages.
