Subject: New books:Pre- and Protomorphology

Pre- and Protomorphology:
Early Phases of Morphological Development in Nouns and Verbs
Maria D. Voeikova and Wolfgang U. Dressler (Eds.)
Editorial assistance: Katherina Korecky-Kroell

This volume presents the intermediate results of the international
"Crosslinguistic Project on Pre- and Protomorphology in Language
Acquisition" co-ordinated by Wolfgang U. Dressler in behalf of the
Austrian Academy of Sciences. It continues the series of publications
started with Dressler & Karpf 1995, Dressler 1997, Dziubalska-Kolaczyk
1997, Gillis 1998, Bittner, Dressler and Kilani-Schoch 2000 as well as
individual publications of the project participants. About the
project - take the introduction from Dressler (manuscript for San
Sebastian).
The book includes several introductory chapters (Dressler &
Kilani-Schoch, Stephany, Voeikova) written by the project
co-ordinators on the base of the written reports of participants and
several studies on the acquisition of noun and verb morphology in the
transitory phase from pre- to protomorphology (for definitions see
Bittner, Dressler and Kilani-Schoch 2000: 3 ff.) and in the
protomorphological phase in eight languages (German, Finnish, French,
Yucatec Maya, Italian, Lithuanian, Russian and Spanish). Both
inflectional and derivational morphology is observed in nouns,
including such topics as compounding, diminutive formation, case and
number distinctions. Verbs are described from the point of view of
inflectional morphology and agreement. Case vs. number and person -
heterogeneous.
Number and person - crosslinguistically - the difference is in the
type of marking and shape (more patterns, inflectional classes
etc. vs. phonological harmony). The set of forms is comparable. Case
- the set of forms is hardly comparable without grouping. Big number
of forms in the paradigm does not aggravate their acquisition if there
are no inflectional classes. On the other hand, small number of
distinct inflectional forms, analytical marking, other means to
express case distinctions may slow the process.
