Morphological Autonomy

Nigel Vincent

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the place of ‘pure’ morphology in the analysis of periphrastic members of paradigms, making particular reference to the Latin participles in ‐urus, ‐tus, and ‐ns and their subsequent history in Romance. We conclude that in most cases, even at late historical stages, a compositional analysis is available if the right theoretical tools are deployed, and consequently that the role of autonomous morphology in periphrasis is severely restricted.

Keywords:   Latin, compositional analysis, non‐finite forms, morpho‐syntactically opaque, historical account
