1 LECTURE 10: INFLECTION CLASSES John D. Alderete, Linguistics 323, Simon Fraser University Goals: this lecture is dedicated to the description and analysis of inflection classes, like noun declension classes, which are a kind of suppletive allomorphy at the level of the lexeme. After giving a review of suppletive allomorphy, this mode of analysis will be used to look at selected cases from the book and different factors in choosing allomorphs (e.g., semantic, morphological, lexical) will be identified. Also, analyses using both word syntax and word schemas will be given. After completing the reading and lecture, the student should be able to identify and classify inflection classes and understand the analytical issues (i.e., syntax versus schemas) surrounding them. Keywords: suppletive allomophy, lexeme (review); inflection class, declensions, conjugations, influences in selection of allomorphs, schemas Reading: UM chapter 7.0-7.2 SUPPLETIVE ALLOMORPHY Definitions: suppletion, lexeme (review) Definition: inflection class

    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.
