Compound markers and parametric variation*

Angela Ralli
Published Online: 2009-09-25 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1524/stuf.2008.0004

This paper investigates the existence of a compound marker in Modern Greek and other typologically different languages. It argues that its presence relates to a parameter of an overtly realized paradigmatic inflection, and that its systematic or non-systematic character depends on the type of constituency with respect to the categories of stem or word that are involved in compound formation. It also shows that with respect to its origin, the marker may be the synchronic residue of a phonological epenthesis, or the product of evolution of other functional or lexical elements that have undergone the process of morphologization.

Keywords: compound; compound marker; paradigmatic inflection; stem-based compounding; word-based compounding
