Presents a theory of conversion and subtraction relevant to languages with rich inflectional morphology.
Details a theoretical framework that is accessible/translatable into other frameworks, making it suitable for use in Slavic languages as well as for general linguists.
Handles the morphological analyses of traditional Slavic sources (written in different Slavic languages) in an innovative way and situates them in the current morphological debates
This volume analyzes morphological and morphonological phenomena from a number of distinct Slavic languages. It does so in an innovative manner, yet also positions the analysis in the context of current morphological debates. It is thus a valuable contribution both to comparative Slavic morphology and general morphological theory. Moreover, the book is the first attempt at a theory of conversion and subtraction relevant to languages with rich inflectional morphology. It contributes to our structural understanding of the nature of word. As the first illustration of subtraction with examples from southern Slavic languages, it is an excellent source of specialist data. The book’s theoretical framework is easily accessible and applicable to other languages, which makes it attractive to researchers on Slavic languages and general linguists alike. The volume will also appeal to general morphologists, typologists, and advanced students in linguistics.
