Abstract:

This volume explores the syntax, semantics, and morphology of -ble adjectives
within Distributed Morphology. It presents a decompositional analysis of -ble
that captures intralinguistic variation and accounts for morphologically more
complex languages. It contributes novel empirical data. First, the
grammaticality of -ble formations derived from unergatives and unaccusatives
in Spanish is argued to be a function of their exoskeletal properties in
interaction with language-specific facts and features of the grammar of
cognation, degrees, quantification and Aktionsart. A previously unnoticed
correlation between the Spanish data and a cognate configuration with
unaccusatives in English reinforces the proposal. Second, the grammaticality
of denominal -ble adjectives in Romance and their absence in English relates
aspects of the internal structure of -ble to issues pertaining to the eventive
properties and syntactico-semantic status of the base nouns. This
crosslinguistic proposal implicates central issues in the
syntax-semantics-morphology interface, e.g. cross category derivations, locus
of variation, or status of impossible words.
