Distributed Morphology Today

One of Morris Halle's many lasting contributions to the study of morphology is his elaboration of a principled relationship between morphology and syntax. In particular, his work in Distributed Morphology argues that syntactic nodes provide the domains within which morphological disjunctivity obtains. This chapter demonstrates that an elusive interaction in Georgian inflection can be elegantly captured under a Distributed Morphology analysis that combines Halle's theory of fission with Béjar's theory of Agree. The interaction in question is the disjunctivity among number-agreement suffixes on Georgian verbs.

Keywords:   Morris Halle, Distributed Morphology, syntax, theory of fission, Béjar, Georgian verbs, number-agreement suffixes
