Abstract:

Irregularity is a philological concept which is not adequately defined. Thepresent volume aims to improve the understanding of irregularity within thedomain of morphology, relating to inflectional, derivation, and compounding.Studies aim to discover the potential regularity behind irregularities, the fact orhypothesis that regular (sound) change produces irregularity (Sturtevant'sParadox), the nature of paradigms (esp. suppletion and overabundance), and theinterplay of irregular morphology with syntax and pragmatics. Perspectives aresynchronic and diachronic. A few studies approach irregularity from thepsycholinguistic point of view (issues of memory and acquisition).

Languages studied include Latin and its daughter languages French, Catalanand Italian, but also English, German, Greek, Russian, Turkish, ThompsonSalish, and the Iroquoian languages. Theories discussed include CanonicalTypology, Distributed Morphology, Whole Word Morphology, Minimalism, andthe Procedural/Declarative Model.
