Description

This book presents an account of certain problems of morphological analysis that occurs within a theoretical framework that derives its inspiration from recent studies of the lexicon in generative grammar. The starting point is the controversy about the proper analysis of synthetic compounds. Are they really compounds, or phrasal derivations, or do they constitute a type of word formation of their own?

Contents

1. Theory of the Lexicon 2. The Compositionality Principle in Lexical Theory 3. Composition 4. Synthetic Compounds 5. A Categorial Theory of Synthetic Composition 6. Semantic Properties of Dutch Nominalisations
