Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that periphrastic constructions can express features which are not part of the content of their elements. This favours an analysis which integrates them in the morphological paradigm. On the other hand, agreement data suggest that a treatment along these lines is not unproblematic. The chapter proposes an account within Paradigm Function Morphology.

Keywords: morphology; periphrasis; features; agreement; paradigm; Bulgarian
