Analogy, Levelling, Markedness: Principles of Change in Phonology and Morphology
By: Aditi Lahiri (editor)Hardback
2 - 4 weeks availability
Ranging from tonogenesis, stress shift, and quantity readjustment to paradigmatic levelling, allomorphy, and grammaticalization, this collection covers a wide spectrum of developments, primarily in Germanic, Romance, and Indo-Aryan. A traditional umbrella category of change in systems is that of analogy. Somewhat less sanctioned, markedness is a basic relation shaping the structure of systems, in phonology as well as morphology.
Aditi Lahiri is Professor of General Linguistics at the University of Konstanz.
