Kayardild Morphology and Syntax

Chapter 4 lays the major conceptual foundations for the analysis of inflection and syntax in Chapters 5–9. The inventory of morphosyntactic features and values is introduced. A review of morphological realization is given focusing on inflectional morphology. Restrictions on feature co-occurrence and the blocking of realization by other features is introduced and its centrality to the analysis of the dual tense system is noted. A notion of concord is set out, whereby features percolate from a higher syntactic node to all lower nodes within a non-surface syntactic tree whose general structure is noted in anticipation of arguments in later chapters. The loci of empirical evidence for the analysis of syntax are identified. Morphological and syntactic word classes and phrasal categories are set out.

Keywords:   Kayardild, concord, feature percolation, agreement, inflection, morphology, inferential-realizational morphology, feature co-occurrence, disjunctive ordering, syntax
