Exponence refers to the mapping of morphosyntactic structure to phonological representations, a research area which is not only highly controversial, but also approached in fundamentally different ways in theoretical morphology and phonology. This volume brings together leading specialists from morphosyntax and morphophonology. The authors address common problems, questions and solutions in both areas, and formulate a coherent research program for exponence which integrates thecentral insights of the last decades and provides important new challenges for the future. The book is aimed at phonologists, morphologists, and syntacticians of all theoretical persuasions at graduate level and above.

Author Biography

Jochen Trommer is lecturer in Linguistics at the University of Leipzig and specializes in theoretical phonology and morphology, with a particular focus on the structure of lesser studied languages (e.g. Kiranti, Algonquian, and Western Nilotic). Currently his main interests are the learning of morphological segmentation and meaning, the role of moras in phonology and morphology, and the residue of nonconcatenative morphology (polarity and subtraction). His published work includes articles in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory and Linguistics.
