Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Hodge, Carleton T. (1970)

Abstract

In this article Hodge presents the history of Egyptian as empirical support for his hypothesis that a single language can pass through the full cycle of different morphological types: from heavy syntax and little morphology (Sm) to little syntax and heavy morphology (sM) and back again to heavy syntax and little morphology (Sm). Hodge’s slogan “one man’s morphology is yesterday’s syntax” (Hodge 1970: 3) is the less known version of Givón’s “Today’s morphology is yesterday’s syntax“.
