This e-book is correct for phonologists, morphologists, Slavists and cognitive linguists, and addresses questions: How can the morphology-phonology interface be accommodated in cognitive linguistics? Do morphophonological alternations have a that means? those questions are explored through a entire research of stem alternations in Russian verbs. The research is couched in R.W. Langacker's Cognitive Grammar framework, and the publication deals comparisons to different kinds of cognitive linguistics, comparable to building Grammar and Conceptual Integration. The proposed research is moreover in comparison to rule-based and constraint-based ways to phonology in generative grammar. with out resorting to underlying representations or procedural principles, the Cognitive Linguistics framework allows an insightful method of summary phonology, providing the real benefit of restrictiveness. Cognitive Grammar offers an research of a whole morphophonological process by way of a parsimonious set of theoretical constructs that each one have cognitive motivation. No advert hoc equipment is invoked, and the research yields powerful empirical predictions. one other virtue is that Cognitive Grammar can determine the which means of morphophonological alternations. for instance, it's argued that stem alternations in Russian verbs conspire to sign non-past which means. This publication is obtainable to a huge readership and provides a welcome contribution to phonology and morphology, that have been understudied in cognitive linguistics.

Example text

Metaphorically speaking, such schemas are “molecules” consisting of the “atoms” mentioned in the content requirement; they do not contain structures that are not licensed by the content requirement. 4, the dashed arrow connects two symbolic schemas. Does this mean that the two schemas are partially compatible with regard to both form and meaning? As for form, both schemas contain a stem ending in a labial consonant, so the answer is clearly in the affirmative. It furthermore makes sense to say that the schemas are partially compatible in terms of meaning.

This book explores many examples of this type. A particularly complex example is discussed in depth in chapter 7. e. where a certain order of application is necessary in order to produce the correct output although this order does not follow from a general principle like the Elsewhere Condition? Can such cases be accounted for in Cognitive Grammar? Examples from classical generative phonology often involve long chains of derivations from abstract underlying representations via several intermediate steps to the observable surface forms.

Lakoff 1993b: 216 and Haspelmath 1997: 1), according to which temporal expressions are metaphorical extensions from spatial meanings (cf. g. the analysis of the use of Russian prepositions that express time in Nesset 2004). Janda (2004) has shown that the category of aspect in Russian can be analyzed in terms of spatial metaphor. Metaphors like argument is war and time is space represent mappings between two domains. A theoretical framework that accommodates mappings between more than two domains is known as Conceptual Integration or Conceptual Blending.
