Dressler, Dieter Kastovsky and Hans Christian Luschützky (eds.), pp. 107–1282010.
A natural way of formally modeling language change is to adopt a procedural, dynamic approach that gets at the notion of emergence and decay. We argue that in the realm of morphological change, and notably the reorganization of a lexeme’s paradigm, a model that at a given synchronic stage holds… read more | Article
The basic colour terms of Lower Sorbian and Upper Sorbian and their typological relevance. Studies in Language 32:1, pp. 56–922008.
Berlin & Kay’s basic colour term framework claims that there is an ordering in the diachronic development of languages’ colour systems. One generalisation is that primary colours, WHITE, BLACK, RED, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, are lexicalised before derived colours, which are perceptual blends, e.g.… read more | Article
Evolving secondary colours: Evidence from Sorbian. Progress in Colour Studies: Volume I. Language and culture, Biggam, Carole P. and Christian Kay (eds.), pp. 127–1432006.
Suppletion is where the word-forms of the same lexeme have phonologically distinct stems. A study of thirty languages shows it to be surprisingly widespread, suggesting resistance to the pressure of paradigmatic levelling. While a major factor in its preservation appears to be the high frequency of… read more | Article
