This publication is correct for phonologists, morphologists, Slavists and cognitive linguists, and addresses questions: How can the morphology-phonology interface be accommodated in cognitive linguistics? Do morphophonological alternations have a that means? those questions are explored through a complete research of stem alternations in Russian verbs. The research is couched in R.W. Langacker's Cognitive Grammar framework, and the e-book bargains comparisons to different kinds of cognitive linguistics, comparable to building Grammar and Conceptual Integration. The proposed research is in addition in comparison to rule-based and constraint-based techniques to phonology in generative grammar.
Without resorting to underlying representations or procedural ideas, the Cognitive Linguistics framework allows an insightful method of summary phonology, providing the real good thing about restrictiveness. Cognitive Grammar presents an research of a whole morphophonological procedure by way of a parsimonious set of theoretical constructs that every one have cognitive motivation. No advert hoc equipment is invoked, and the research yields robust empirical predictions. one other virtue is that Cognitive Grammar can establish the that means of morphophonological alternations. for instance, it truly is argued that stem alternations in Russian verbs conspire to sign non-past meaning.
This booklet is out there to a vast readership and gives a welcome contribution to phonology and morphology, which were understudied in cognitive linguistics.
