Deponency and Morphological Mismatches

British Academy

This chapter discusses a proposal of a conception of canonical dependency in language. It demonstrates that the instances of canonical dependency are prone to two very different analyses. It also examines a particular pattern of non-canonical deponency and its implications for choosing between the contrasting analyses canonical dependency is being subjected to. In this chapter, Latin deponent verbs are regarded as an instance of canonical deponency.

Keywords:   canonical dependency, Latin, deponent verbs
