mar. 19/10/2021 Morphology without morphemes: complexity, typology and evolution
ISH, salle Marc Bloch
Conférence de :
  • Sacha BENIAMINE (Surrey Morphology Group, University of Surrey, UK)

dans le cadre DILIS

When segmenting inflected words into morphemes, linguists usually rely on conventions inherited from specific grammatical traditions, and draw on complex intuitions informed by diachronic evidence and by their own sense of grammatical elegance. As a result, these analyses are not meant to isolate units which are comparable across languages. How, then, can we ensure the comparability necessary to study the typology of inflectional systems ?

The Word-based approach to morphology provides a useful perspective: It takes paradigms to be structured networks of words which can be insightfully studied by characterizing recurrent, empirical formal relationships between them, without the need to reify traditional, abstract constituents such as stems or morphemes. My project aims to leverage computational tools to study these relationships quantitatively, and address key questions in morphology: How can speakers produce and recognize unknown inflected words ? How does the organization of inflectional exponence vary across languages ? How does analogical change contribute to paradigm evolution ?

I approach these questions by collecting and curating large, unsegmented, inflected lexicons. I then write computational tools which produce comparable descriptions such as (non-morphemic) segmentations and analogical patterns. In turn, these descriptions constitute the basis for quantitative models of paradigm organization and change, and for precise measures of linguistic variation.


mar. 26/10/2021 Out of sight and out of mind: distance and accessibility contrasts in Kuuk Thaayorre placeholders
MSH, salle Rivet + vidéoconference (voir ci-dessous)
Conférence de :
  • Alice Gaby (Monash University, Australia)

dans le cadre DILIS : Atelier Morphosyntaxe

  • Link to the videoconference room
  • Link to the material to come

      This talk will consider filler and placeholder terms in several Australian Aboriginal languages, with a particular focus on Kuuk Thaayorre. In Kuuk Thaayorre, the most commonly used placeholders are (etymologically) the two pronominal demonstrative forms. The proximal form inhul ‘this one’ is used to avoid disruption, where explicit reference is not necessary for the conversation to progress, whereas the distal form yuunhul ‘that one’ is used to signal disruption, where the desired lexeme is temporarily ‘inaccessible’ to the speaker and reference must be established for the conversation to progress. We will also consider a range of other forms (including ignoratives/epistememes and adnominal demonstratives) that may function as placeholders in Kuuk Thaayorre discourse. Finally, the Kuuk Thaayorre placeholders will be contrasted with the dedicated placeholder terms of Yanyuwa and Wubuy, reporting the preliminary findings of research with John Bradley and Simon Musgrave.
