This monograph addresses morphology and its interfaces with phonology and
syntax by examining comparative data from the Uto-Aztecan language family,
and analyses involving reduplication as well as noun incorporation and
related derivational morphology are provided within the framework of
Distributed Morphology. Reduplication is treated by analyzing reduplicative
morphemes (reduplicants) as morphological pieces (Vocabulary Items)
inserted into syntactic slots at Morphological Structure. Noun
incorporation constructions are analyzed as involving either incorporation
(head movement in syntax, a la Baker 1988), or conflation, involving direct
merger of a nominal root into verbal position (a la Hale and Keyser 2002).
It is argued that denominal verb constructions should be treated as a
sub-case of NI, as in Hale and Keyser (1993). Finally, the historical
development of the polysynthesis parameter in Nahuatl is discussed, and a
reconstruction of the likely stages of development, each of which is
attested elsewhere in the family, is presented.
