 							Towards a typology of grammatical features

Show Summary Details


This chapter offers a typology of features which express meanings or functions correlating with different forms of inflected words. Morphosyntactic, morphosemantic, and purely morphological features are distinguished on the basis of their available realization options. It is suggested that the tense‐aspect‐mood‐polarity affixes of Kayardild (Tangkic) realize morphosemantic features.

Keywords: inflectional morphology; feature typology; morphosyntactic features; morphosemantic features; morphological features; inherent vs. contextual; agreement; government; case‐stacking; TAMP
