We explore a theory of morphology grounded in the outlook of the Parallel Architecture (PA, Jackendoff 2002), drawing in large part on Construction Morphology (Booij 2010). The fundamental goal is to describe what a speaker stores and in what form, and to describe how this knowledge is put to use in constructing novel utterances. A basic tenet of PA is that(More)
Coercion is a much-discussed topic in the linguistic literature. This article expands the usual range of cases at the most subtle and the most extreme end: it demonstrates how coercion extends into semantic flexibility on the one hand and into idiomaticity on the other. After discussing a broad variety of coercion cases in syntax and morphology and briefly(More)
The Parallel Architecture (PA) (Jackendoff 1997, 2002, 2011) is a framework for understanding the organization of language and its place in the larger ecology of the human mind. It has met with considerable success in accounting for semantics, syntax and their interaction (Jackendoff 1983, 1990; Culicover and Jackendoff 2005). The present chapter sketches a(More)
This article presents a systematic exposition of how the basic ideas of Construction Grammar (CxG) (Goldberg, ) and the Parallel Architecture (PA) of grammar (Jackendoff, ) provide the framework for a proper account of morphological phenomena, in particular word formation. This framework is referred to as Construction Morphology (CxM). As to the(More)
