Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In the course of the past 20 years or so, considerable efforts have been devoted to building workable accounts of the syntax/phonology interface (Kaye 1995, Borer 2005a,b, 2013, Embick 2010). Except for Kaye (1995), most of the proposals emanate from syntacticians. In this class, we will look at things as phonologists and critically evaluate extant proposals, asking a) what sort of phonology is compatible with those proposals? and b) is it good enough?
The answer to b) will be «Not that bad…But there is definitely room for improvement!». We will rapidly review key features of the relevant morphosyntactic devices advocated by the authors mentioned above, especially phases. Then, we will focus on notions such as spellout, roots especially (do they cluster?), the identity of affixes and their relation to stems. The phenomenologies we will examine are, among others, Gender exponence, Number exponence, Diminutive Formation, Semitic templates and their possible deconstruction.
