LNGS 404: Morphological Theory


This course delves into the various theoretical approaches to the analysis of word structure.
The implications of the approaches for our understanding of the architecture of the grammar
will be assessed. As part of the course, students will be expected to apply the various
theoretical frameworks to the analysis of a morphological pattern in a language other than
English. Topics to be discussed include Construction Morphology, Distributed Morphology,
Word and Paradigm Morphology and Word Grammar.
