Deponency and Morphological Mismatches

Andrew Spencer

British Academy

This chapter discusses a number of types of mismatch that do not fit neatly into more traditional schemas. Most of these are considered mismatches that occur when a word of one morpholexical category inflects, as if it were a member of a different morpholexical category. It provides a rough preliminary typology of mismatches that is based on four properties and mentions a few instances of within-class mismatches. The chapter also looks at complications in the Hindu verb system and how morphological mismatches might be reflected in syntactic behaviour.

Keywords:   mismatches, morpholexical category, typology, Hindu verb system, morphological mismatches, syntactic behaviour
