Morphological Typology: Agglutination ¬- Flexion


We continue to investigate morphological typology, especially agglutination vs. flexion, addressing the overall question, How do languages come to have inflectional systems with the typological properties that they have? Particular attention will be given to (i) phonological phrasing; (ii) morphological cumulation and fusional phonology; (iii) suspended affixation as a morphological and/or a phonological phenomenon; (iv) the storage, accessing, and processing of inflectional forms. The customary methods of typological and historical linguistics will be supplemented by field work, computer modelling of developmental scenarios, and neurolinguistic and psycholinguistic experiments.
