Deponency and Morphological Mismatches

Matthew Baerman

British Academy

This chapter discusses the morphological typology of deponency. It shows that the theoretical interest of deponent verbs in Latin is clear, and that morphological forms are not simply a blind reflection of the categories they represent. A mismatch between form and function is discussed, and the active and passive voices in Latin deponents are studied. Other sections in this chapter examine normal realization, lexically specified sets, and the lack of a normal function.

Keywords:   morphological typology, deponency, theoretical interest, morphological forms, form, function, Latin deponents, active, passive voices, normal realization, lexically specified sets, normal function
