Sample text

Reasoning on the basis of a detailed comparison between complex nominals arguably derived from verbs, and gerunds, Chomsky constructs a typology of syntactic vs. lexical operations. Thus he points out that while gerunds are entirely regular and predictably share the properties of the verbs embedded within them, that is not the case for de-verbal nominals, where both interpretational and syntactic idiosyncrasies are common, and where the systematic inheritance of verbal properties cannot be taken for granted.

2 below, as part of a more general discussion of realizational models. As a historical footnote, a syntax–lexicon parameter was suggested in Borer (1984), and pursued, for instance, in Borer (1990). Crucially, however, what was parameterized in that model was not a formal operation of any sort, which was in all cases identical and responsible for the concatenation of particular morphemes. Rather, the variation involved the merger possibilities of the output. A Lexical choice entailed that the morpheme combination merged as such at D-structure.

Indeed, in much of his own work, Beard denies the use for any such constituent structure. It therefore follows that even if there is a lexicon with listed units, such units are not listed with fully specified phonological form, but rather their phonological realization may be potentially sensitive to a variety of independent factors including aspects of the syntactic derivation. e. involves so-called “Late Insertion”. Thus viewed with the benefit of hindsight, we may now conclude (as would Halle himself, no doubt) that it was probably an error to conflate the phonological irregularities within the inflectional domain with the syntactic and Content irregularities within the domain of so-called derivational morphology, so as to use inflectional irregularities as supporting evidence for the listed nature of all outputs of word formation operations.
