In Trouble with the Rules. Theoretical Issues Raised by the Insertion of -sc- Verbs into Word Formation Latin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Word Formation Latin (WFL) is a derivational lexicon of Classical Latinthat connects lexical items on the basis of word-formation rules (WFRs).This paper describes the process of inserting the class of Latin -sc- verbs asa test case for discussing a number of linguistic theory issues arising from pigeonholing such a multiform class of verbs into a model regulated by a strict morphotactic approach. Additionally it discusses the first steps towards thedesign of a Word and Paradigm model for the representation of derivational families in Latin
