Declarative Deponency: A Network Morphology Account of Morphological Mismatches

Andrew R. Hippisley, University of Kentucky

Abstract

This chapter discusses an account of Latin deponent verbs in Network Morphology, which is a declarative framework for writing default inheritance-based theories of the lexicon. The Network Morphology framework is introduced, followed by a detailed Network Morphology treatment of Latin deponent and semi-deponent verbs. These are recasted as a formal system of defaults, and override the properties of deponency drawn together by Baerman.
