Exponence refers to the mapping of morphosyntactic structure to phonological representations, a research area which is not only highly controversial, but also approached in fundamentally different ways in theoretical morphology and phonology. This volume brings together leading specialistsfrom morphosyntax and morphophonology. The authors address common problems, questions and solutions in both areas, and formulate a coherent research program for exponence which integrates the central insights of the last decades and provides important new challenges for the future. The book isaimed at phonologists, morphologists, and syntacticians of all theoretical persuasions at graduate level and above.
Jochen Trommer is Lecturer in Linguistics at the University of Leipzig and specializes in theoretical phonology and morphology, with a particular focus on the structure of lesser studied languages (e.g. Kiranti, Algonquian, and Western Nilotic). Currently his main interests are the learning of morphological segmentation and meaning, t...
