Paradigm transparency is the extent to which an entire inflectional paradigm is deducible analogically from a subset of its component parts. This chapter proposes precise measures of paradigm transparency. Evidence from Chinantec and Fur demonstrates that paradigm transparency is a significant domain of typological variation, and that the No-Blur Principle is incompatible with this range of variation.

Keywords:   paradigm, analogical structure, typology, morphology, inflection, principal parts, Chinantec, Fur
