Genus, Derivation und Quantifikation

Zur Funktion der Suffigierung und verwandter Phänomene im Deutschen

[Gender, Derivation, and Quantification]

Series:Studia Linguistica Germanica 114

    Aims and Scope

    The function of the grammatical category of gender is one of the most controversial issues in linguistics. This study draws to inquire about the extent to which there is a diachronically established relationship motivated by core grammatical structure between gender and suffixation that can be described in terms of nominal quantification . According to this view, word formation by means of suffixes in New High German serves less for transposition and modification, and more for the creation of overtly marked, quantifiable nouns.
