How Safe Are Our Analyses?

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses one view of inflectional morphology, which Stump calls ‘inferential-realizational’. It notes that the term ‘deponent’ is still used in the description of Latin and other older Indo-European languages. It inquires as to what other languages might have deponents and what other properties these languages may have in common.

Keywords: inflectional morphology; Stump; deponents; Latin
