1 LECTURE 5 – INFLECTION Goals: this lecture is an introduction to inflectional morphology, providing a number of concepts and terms for describing this type of morphology, how paradigms are constructed in tables and rows, and the categories of the most common inflectional dimensions (number, gender, case, tense, aspect, modality). These concepts and terms will be illustrated using some paradigms and examples for Old English and Modern English. They will also be extremely important to the successful completion of the final project, where students will examine these categories in a different language. After completing the reading and lecture, the student should understand how these concepts apply to English examples and solve problems like exercises (1) (assorted languages) and (2) (Lezgian) in the back of UM chapter 4. Keywords: inflectional category, inflectional dimension, paradigm construction, number, gender, case, tense, aspect, mood, voice markings, dependent verbs Reading: UM 4.1 (read carefully)
