1 LECTURE 8: WORD TREES Goals: this lecture explores some of the arguments for word-internal hierarchical structure and discusses how they might be formalized. It focuses on derivational and compounding morphology and lists some of the properties of head-dependent compounds. Then, using the formalisms from lecture 4, some rules that account for these properties are introduced and other compound types are illustrated. After completing the reading and lecture, the student should be able to draw tree diagrams that mark lexical categories for basic English words and compounds, like those of exercise (2) in UM chapter 5; also, (1) and (4) can be used to sharpen these skills. Keywords: hierarchical structure, word trees, types of compounds, head and dependent compounds, formalisms for generating word trees Reading: UM chapter 5 ADDING LEXICAL CATEGORIES TO WORD TREES Question: what is the internal structure of unhappiness ?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
