Affix ordering in Optimal Construction Morphology
This paper sketches an integrated approach to affix ordering within Optimal Construction Morphology, a bottom-up, competition based model of word production in which each step of affixation is the optimal choice among competing possibilities (Caballero & Inkelas 2013). Optimalitytheoretic models are natural fits for affix ordering, a complex phenomenon governed by a mix of conflicting universal and language-specific factors which interact differently in every language. This study covers familiar, global cross-linguistic principles such as semantic relevance (e.g., Bybee 1985) and scope (e.g., Baker 1988; Rice 2000), integrating them with local lexical selectional restrictions (e.g., Fabb 1988); it also incorporates usage-based factors such as Complexity-Based Ordering (e.g., Hay & Plag 2004). The study innovates in adding affix informativity to the mix.
