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.

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 ? Task: identify the subcategorization requirements of each morpheme, and their
