A Dual Theory of Roots: Evidence from Gender-Marking Languages
Ivona Kučerová and Adam Szczegielniak
232-241 (complete paper or proceedings contents)


We propose that roots are not homogeneous when it gets to their syntactic features. While some roots don't have any syntactic features from the lexicon, other roots do. This distinction has consequences for derivational timing and properties of the extended functional domain. We argue that it also has consequences for our typology of features.
