Morphological Productivity
Laurie Bauer
Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

Morphological productivity has, over the centuries, been a major
factor in providing the huge vocabulary of English and remains one of
the most contested areas in the study of word formation and
structure. This book takes an eclectic approach to the topic, applying
the findings for morphology to syntax and phonology. Bringing together
the results of twenty years' work in the field, it provides new
insights and considers a wide range of linguistic and psycholinguistic
evidence.

Computational Nonlinear Morphology
with emphasis on Semitic languages

George Anton Kiraz, Nuance Communications


By the late 1970s, phonologists, and later morphologists, had departed
from a linear approach for describing morphophonological operations to
a nonlinear one. Computational models, however, remain faithful to the
linear model, making it very difficult, if not impossible, to
implement the morphology of languages whose morphology is
nonconcatanative. This study aims at presenting a computational system
that counters the development in linguistics. It provides a detailed
computational analysis of the complex morphophonological phenomena
found in Semitic languages based on linguistically motivated models.
