A minimalist approach to roots
The necessity for roots to be categorized in syntax is recast as an interface condition, resulting from the SEM-deficient character of free acategorial roots. The question of how much descriptive content roots (may) bear is linked to the idiomatic, non-compositional interpretation of the First Phase. The consequences of such a version of syntactic decomposition of words for the morphological realization of roots are outlined, as well as this account’s compatibility with conceptual atomism.
