Abstract:

Irregularity is a philological concept which is not adequately defined. The
present volume aims to improve the understanding of irregularity within the
domain of morphology, relating to inflectional, derivation, and compounding.
Studies aim to discover the potential regularity behind irregularities, the fact or
hypothesis that regular (sound) change produces irregularity (Sturtevant's
Paradox), the nature of paradigms (esp. suppletion and overabundance), and the
interplay of irregular morphology with syntax and pragmatics. Perspectives are
synchronic and diachronic. A few studies approach irregularity from the
psycholinguistic point of view (issues of memory and acquisition).

Languages studied include Latin and its daughter languages French, Catalan
and Italian, but also English, German, Greek, Russian, Turkish, Thompson
Salish, and the Iroquoian languages. Theories discussed include Canonical
Typology, Distributed Morphology, Whole Word Morphology, Minimalism, and
the Procedural/Declarative Model.
