Abstract:
			
Lexical Template Morphology
Change of state and the verbal prefixes in German by B. Roger Maylor, 
University of Durham

While there have been many attempts in the literature to account for
the semantics and syntax of individual German(ic)prefixes, this is the
first time that the prefixes have been analysed in a unified way and a
framework established that is capable of relating the prefixes to each
other and to other areas of the grammar.

The templates provide the means whereby a State/Change of State
feature interacts with Figure and Ground arguments to generate
prefixed verbs, noun- and adjective-incorporating verbs, and oblique
case marking on the complements of simplex verbs and adjectives.

This book presents a new and potentially powerful theory of lexical
morphology that will be of interest not only to morphologists and
those working on the grammar of German, but also syntacticians working
on the Locative and Dative Alternations, and linguists whose prime
concern is the organization of the lexicon, and the realization of the
semantics of change of state predicates.
