Seminar on Morphological Theories (graduate, with Paul Kiparsky)
This course investigates the theoretical and empirical consequences of two classes of morphosyntactic theories --- broadly construed, Lexicalism and Distributed Morphology. Our goal is to dissect the assumptions behind these approaches and to investigate, using a number of case studies, the fine-grained predictions made by each kind of theory for complex linguistic data, including putative prosodic second-place effects, blocking phenomena, affix ordering, and locality effects in allomorphic selection. For each case study, we focus on understanding what combination of assumptions and theoretical devices are required for a satisfactory account to hold within each class of theory.
