Inflectional Paradigms: Content and Form at the Syntax-Morphology Interface
Theoretical synopsis and two further issues, and a conception of the relation of content to form in inflectional paradigms.
Chapter 2 One lexeme , many classes : Inflection class systems as lattices
I submit that the structure of ICs is a typological property of inflectional systems. As a result, ICs are best modelled as semi-lattices, which by design capture noncanonical phenomena. I show how
Formalizing Inflectional Paradigm Shape with Information Theory
“Paradigm shape,” our term for the morphological structure formed by implicative relations between inflected forms, has not been formally quantified in a gradient manner. We develop a method to
Frugal Paradigm Completion
This work proposes a frugal paradigm completion approach that predicts all related forms in a morphological paradigm from as few manually provided forms as possible and is the most robust to typological variation.
Analogy, complexity and predictability in the Russian nominal inflection system
A case study on the Russian nominal inflection system is presented, and it is argued that implicative relations between markers, noun semantics and stem phonology all play a role in helping speakers solve the pcfp.
(Stem and Word) Predictability in Italian Verb Paradigms: An Entropy-Based Study Exploiting the New Resource LeFFI
LeFFI, an inflected lexicon of Italian listing all the available wordforms of 2,053 verbs is presented, and an entropy-based analysis of the mutual predictability of wordforms within Italian verb paradigms is performed.
Morphological Theory and Typology
This chapter offers an overview of major issues in morphological typology, starting with the controversial definitions of basic notions such as ‘wordform’ and ‘lexeme’, and proceeding to the classification of morphological phenomena along the syntagmatic and paradigmatic axes.

In this paper I present data from several Niger Congo languages, illustrating how the paradigms which make up the noun class systems of these languages are problematic to analyze within traditional
Seri verb classes: Morphosyntactic motivation and morphological autonomy
Abstract: The verbal suffixes of Seri (a language isolate of Sonora, Mexico) divide the lexicon into classes of unparalleled complexity. The paradigm has only four forms, which mark subject number
Paradigm structure and predictability in derivational morphology
It is concluded that key quantitative properties are common to inflectional and derivational paradigmatic systems, and hence that (partial) paradigms are an important ingredient of the study of derivation.
