Title: On Inflection
Edited By: Patrick O. Steinkrüger
Manfred Krifka
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110186062-1
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 184
Description:

The volume is dedicated to the German linguist Wolfgang Ullrich "Gustav"
Wurzel (1940-2001), who has influenced linguistic thought in his work on
paradigm-based morphology. All contributors to the volume deal with
Wurzel’s work and thinking, who in his theoretical writings focused on the
concepts of naturalness, markedness and complexity in human language. The
authors discuss diachronic and typological aspects of morphology, i.e. the
nature of paradigms, the rise and fall of inflectional morphology, and the
development and systems of gender marking, also in regard to the interface
with phonology and syntax.
