1 LECTURE 4 – MODELING MORPHOLOGICAL PROCESSES John D. Alderete, Linguistics 323, Simon Fraser University Goals: to review some of the principal observations made about morphological systems in the past three lectures and establish the beginnings of two theories that are designed to account for these observations. In particular, a theory of ‘word syntax’ will be introduced, based in morpheme-based morphology, as well as the ‘word schemas’ approach, which is designed to account for nonconcatenative morphology. After completing the reading and lecture, students should be able to formalize, as either word syntax or word schemas, basic morphological patterns like that illustrated in problems (2) and (3) in UM p. 58 and they should also be capable of formalizing non-concatenative morphological patterns, like those illustrated in problem (3) in UM p. 37-38. Keywords: morphological productivity, word-structure rules, lexical entries for morphemes, subcategorization frames, word schemas, problems for morpheme-based word syntax Reading: chapter 3 UM (3.3 is not covered in this lecture) REVIEW OF OBSERVATIONS Observations: -words may have internal structure, e.g., word-internal structure = sequence of
