Minimalism and I-Morphology

MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.
This Chapter is currently unavailable for purchase.

I address the question of how morphology can be approached within the Minimalist program, focusing on the notion of asymmetry which has been shown to contribute to the understanding of language and other complex systems. I distinguish the Internalist from the Externalist approach to morphology. I discuss the properties of the operations deriving morphological expressions, including the structure building operation and the operation governing the relations between features. Lastly, I raise the question whether morphological and syntactic complexity is limited by the same kind of conditions stemming from other sub-systems of the mind/brain than the language faculty.
