Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Bobaljik, Jonathan (2007)

Abstract

Provides a (post-)syntactic account of the typological generalization that "If the comparative degree of an adjective is built on a suppletive root, then the superlative will also be suppletive. (Ultan 1972, 144) based on the assumption that the phrase structure of comparatives is properly contained in the one of superlatives. See Bonami & Boyé (2002) and Wiese (2008) for *A B A syncretism patterns in other domains and different approaches.
