Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Halle, Morris (1992)

Abstract

(= Surrey 42) In this Distributed Morphology analysis of Latvian declension, instances of case syncretism (accidental cases aside) are treated as resulting from underspecification, except for one pair of referrals: the nominative/genitive syncretism which occurs in the singular of some noun classes both in the masculine declension (nom/gen tirgus vs. nom tevs, gen teva on the one hand and nom/gen zivs vs. nom masa, gen masas on the other) is ascribed to referrals which take the nominative to form the genitive in the former case, and the genitive to form the nominative in the latter.
