Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Halle, Morris (1973)

Abstract

Foundational text for the development of lexicalist morphology. Halle proposes that arbitrary paradigmatic gaps (e.g. in 1sg forms of specific Russian verbs) follow from a filter which assigns the feature [-Lexical Insertion] to specific listed word (form)s (the same type of filter also accounts for semantic and phonological idiosyncrasies in existing/listed words). This approach is remotely similar to the Control approach to Ineffability in OT (Orgun & Sprouse 1999,2010).
