Query Details

Query Subject:   OT analysis of inflection in the German NP
Author:   Andrew Carstairs-McCarthy
Submitter Email:  click here to access email
Subject Language(s):  German

Query:   The distribution of 'strong' and 'weak' suffixes among determiners, adjectives and nouns in the German noun phrase (or DP) seems to cry out for an analysis in terms of violable ranked constraints. I have come across only one article squarely on this topic, however: 'Remarks on nominal inflection in German' by Gereon M?ller, at the Rutgers OT archive. Are there others that I have missed?

I would also be grateful to hear about any other recent theoretically oriented work on the shape and distribution of the suffixes concerned (not just on the morphosyntactic properties that these suffixes realize).

I will post a summary.
