Greville Corbett, Dr Matthew Baerman and Dr Dunstan Brown.
The MORPHOLOGY project investigates the contribution of inflectional morphology
to linguistic complexity, and in particular the role of autonomous
morphological systems, such as inflection classes and many-to-one

functional categories they express. The current position is the first of two
Ph.D. studentships on the project and it is dedicated to the study of
