This is the latest addition to a group of handbooks covering the field of morphology, alongside The Oxford Handbook of Case (2008), The Oxford Handbook of Compounding (2009), and The Oxford Handbook of Derivational Morphology (2014). It provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art overview of work on inflection - the expression of grammatical information through changes in word forms. The volume's 24 chapters are written by experts in the field from a variety of theoretical backgrounds, with examples drawn from a wide range of languages. The first part of the handbook covers the fundamental building blocks of inflectional form and content: morphemes, features, and means of exponence. Part 2 focuses on what is arguably the most characteristic property of inflectional systems, paradigmatic structure, and the non-trivial nature of the mapping between function and form. The third part deals with change and variation over time, and the fourth part covers computational issues from a theoretical and practical standpoint. Part 5 addresses psycholinguistic questions relating to language acquisition and neurocognitive disorders. The final part is devoted to sketches of individual inflectional systems, illustrating a range of typological possibilities across a genetically diverse set of languages from Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Australia, Europe, and South America.

This volume is the first handbook devoted entirely to the multitude of frameworks adopted in the field of morphology, including Minimalism, Optimality Theory, Network Morphology, Cognitive Grammar, and Canonical Typology. Following an introduction from the editors, the first part of the volume offers critical discussions of the main theoretical issues within morphology, both in word formation and in inflection, as well as providing a short history of morphological theory. In the core part of the handbook, part II, each theory is introduced by an expert in the field, who guides the reader through its principles and technicalities, its advantages and disadvantages, and its points of agreement and disagreement with alternative theories. Chapters in part III explore the bigger picture, connecting morphological theory to other subdisciplines of linguistics, such as diachronic change, language acquisition, psycholinguistics, and sign language theory. The handbook is intended as a guide for morphologists from all theoretical backgrounds who want to learn more about frameworks other than their own, as well as for linguists in related subfields looking for theoretical connections with the field of morphology.

The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics presents a comprehensive overview of the main theoretical concepts and descriptive/theoretical models of Cognitive Linguistics, and covers its various subfields, theoretical as well as applied. The first twenty chapters give readers the opportunity to acquire a thorough knowledge of the fundamental analytic concepts and descriptive models of Cognitive Linguistics and their background. The book starts with a set of chapters discussing different conceptual phenomena that are recognized as key concepts in Cognitive Linguistics: prototypicality, metaphor, metonymy, embodiment, perspectivization, mental spaces, etc. A second set of chapters deals with Cognitive Grammar, Construction Grammar, and Word Grammar, which, each in their own way, bring together the basic concepts into a particular theory of grammar and a specific model for the description of grammatical phenomena. Special attention is given to the interrelation between Cognitive and Construction Grammar. A third set of chapters compares Cognitive Linguistics with other forms of linguistic research (functional linguistics, autonomous linguistics, and the history of linguistics), thus giving a readers a better grip on the position of Cognitive Linguistics within the landscape of linguistics at large. The remaining chapters apply these basic notions to various more specific linguistic domains, illustrating how Cognitive Linguistics deals with the traditional linguistic subdomains (phonology, morphology, lexicon, syntax, text and discourse), and demonstrating how it handles linguistic variation and change. Finally they consider its importance in the domain of Applied Linguistics, and look at interdisciplinary links with research fields such as philosophy and psychology. With a well-known cast of contributors from around the world, this reference work will be of interest to researchers and advanced students in (cognitive) linguistics, psychology, cognitive science, and anthropology.

In dieser Abhandlung werden erstmals die nominale Wortbildung des Wogulischen historisch und dialektal behandelt. Bisherige Arbeiten setzten sich lediglich mit dem Norddialekt bzw. hauptsachlich mit synchronen Aspekten der Wortbildung auseinander. Timothy Riese behandelt nicht nur produktive Suffixe, sondern auch langst nicht mehr bei Neubildungen verwendete Nominalsuffixe. Zu diesem Zweck wurden die Worter untersucht, die nachweislich aus vorwogulischen Schichten stammen. Somit konnte man uralische, finnisch-ugrische, ugrische, obugrische und urwogulische Bildungssuffixe unterscheiden bzw. das Vorhandensein eines Suffixes in mehreren sprachlichen Schichten feststellen. Bei jedem Suffix werden folgende Punkte erortert: Herkunft, Entwicklung, Verbreitung, Produktivitat, Verwendung. Des weiteren befasst sich Timothy Riese mit entlehnten nominalen Derivationssuffixen, mit dem Vokalismus der Suffixe und Bindevokale und mit derivationssuffixahnlichen Wortern.

This handbook presents the first systematic account of corpus phonology - the employment of corpora for studying speakers' and listeners' acquisition and knowledge of the sound system of their native languages and the principles underlying those systems. The first part of the book discusses the design, compilation, and use of phonological corpora, while the second looks at specific applications. Part 3 presents the tools and methods used, while the final part examines a number of currently available phonological corpora in various languages. It will appeal not only to those working with phonological corpora, but also to researchers and students of phonology and phonetics more generally, as well as to all those interested in language variation, dialectology, language acquisition, and sociolinguistics.

In einer grundlegenden Überarbeitung der 3. Auflage von 2007 bietet das Werk unter Einbeziehung der neuesten Forschungsliteratur eine aktualisierte Gesamtdarstellung der Wortbildung der deutschen Sprache des 20. und des beginnenden 21. Jahrhunderts. Herausgearbeitet werden die Grundzüge der Wortbildung des Substantivs, Adjektivs, Verbs und Adverbs, wobei sowohl die strukturell-morphologischen als auch die semantischen Parameter der Bildungsmodelle in analytischer und synthetischer Sicht behandelt werden. Im Vordergrund steht das Prinzip synchroner Beschreibung, ggf. ergänzt um sprachhistorische Erklärungen. Neu aufgenommen wurden Kapitel zur Stellung der Wortbildung in der Grammatik sowie zum Verhältnis zwischen Wortbildung und Lexikon. Einige Grundfragen wurden neu entschieden, z. B. die Gliederung der Wortbildungsarten, der wortbildungsmorphologische Status der Verbzusätze und die Gruppierung wortbildungsmorphologischer Paradigmen. Morphosyntaktische Bezüge der Wortbildungsmodelle bekommen ein stärkeres Gewicht. Erweitert wurden das Textkapitel sowie die Darstellung der Fremdwort- und der Kurzwortbildung. Zeitgemäße Beispiele aus journalistischen und belletristischen Quellen sowie aus elektronisch verfügbaren Korpora wurden ergänzt. Ein Sach- und ein Formenregister, beide verbessert, erleichtern die Orientierung im Text.

The papers deal with a range of questions raised for linguistic theory and description by polysynthetic languages. Prototypical polysynthetic lamguages, found among unrelated language families in such varied parts of the world as North America, Meso-America, Siberia, northern Australia, and Papua New Guinea, display remarkably similar suites of grammatical characteristics. But, nearly two centuries after Humboldt and Kleinschmidt began to make the existence and interest of polysythetic languages widely known among linguistics, languages of this type continue to pose a challange to every major linguistic theory.

Als Lehr- und Nachschlagewerk konzipiert, richtet sich diese Grammatik in erster Linie an Lernende, die bereits einfache finnische Texte lesen konnen. Weitere Vorkenntnisse sind nicht erforderlich. In 22 Kapiteln werden die wichtigsten Formen und Strukturen der geschriebenen Sprache vermittelt. Zahlreiche Beispiele veranschaulichen die Regelmaigkeit der finnischen Grammatik. Finnland ist offiziell ein zweisprachiges Land, dessen Nationalsprachen Finnisch und Schwedisch sind. Von den ca. 4,7 Millionen Einwohnern sprechen jedoch etwa 93% Finnisch als Muttersprache. Zudem gibt es aufgrund starker Emigrationsbewegungen vor allem in Nordamerika und Schweden finnischsprachige Minderheiten.

This book examines the nature of the interface between word meaning and syntax, one of the most controversial and elusive issues in contemporary linguistics. It approaches the interface from both sides of the relation, and surveys a range of views on the mapping between them, with an emphasis on lexical approaches to argument structure. Stephen Wechsler begins by analysing the fundamental problem of word meaning, with discussions of vagueness and polysemy, complemented with a look at the roles of world knowledge and normative aspects of word meaning. He then surveys the argument-taking properties of verbs and other predicators, and presents key theories of lexical semantic structure. Later chapters provide a description of formal theories and frameworks for capturing the mapping from word meaning to syntactic structure, as well as arguments in favour of a lexicalist approach to argument structure. The book will interest scholars of theoretical linguistics, particularly in the fields of syntax and lexical semantics, as well as those interested in psycholinguistics and philosophy of language.

This work discusses the relationship between word formation, syntax, and lexicon based on an examination of adjective-noun compounds and phrases in German and in German-Dutch comparison. It describes the semantic and morphosyntactic features of such compounds from a construction grammar perspective. The analysis specifically focuses on the ways that these compounds are related to each other and how they are represented in the mental lexicon.

Conceived as an introduction, this volume begins by discussing the theory and method of the view, shared by all construction grammar approaches, that a unity exists between linguistic form and linguistic meaning. The second part examines studies on language acquisition, morphology, syntax, phraseology, grammaticalization, and spoken language that exemplify the latest research in German linguistics.

In word formation, the French suffixes -ment and -age have similar meanings (e.g. gonflement - swelling, gonflage - inflating). This book analyses the abstract meaning of the two suffixes and shows their systematic differences at an abstract semantic level. As its starting point it considers the speaker's knowledge and the criteria by which these suffixes are used to form derivations.
