Sample text

It would be disingenuous to describe either sent or word in the English gloss as a function word. sent' in the Bangia sentence (50) merit recognition as full words. The option of recognizing certain verbs as less bleached and therefore not exhibiting prototypical vector properties is standard in the compound verb stodies toolkit. Why are we insisting, then, on a bipolar analysis for (50a-p)? We agree that the less bleached vector concept represents a typologically justified gambit. After all, such not-so-light English items as alive, awake, asleep, aghastexhibit particle properties despite their heavy content.

20 Probal Dasgupta Linguists committed to lexical integrity have of course considered the problem in the context of well-studied languages. Ackermann, Stump & Webelhuth (20 II: 331) 14 , for instance, propose the notion of a 'periphrase' - a discontinuous entity that lexically counts as a word although its segments also require syntactic handling - and the following principle integrating periphrastic exponence with other aligmnents at the syntax-lexicon interface: (43) Periphrastic realization principle Where lexeme L belongs to category X, cr is a set ofmorphosyntactic properties associated with L, and the realization w1 w2 of the pairing (L,cr) is periphrastic, w1 and w2 may be inserted as the heads of the respective phrases XP and YP.

This is compatible with substantivist inquiry's need for a specifiable alignment between semantic formalism and the distribution of compact vs periphrastic exponents of integrallexemes as well as that of signatures in the sense of (46), which are in large part a semiotic issue. The verb atomizer works to keep verbal semantics uniform across language types and prescinds from irregularities; the semiotician at a language-specific level postulates words surrounded by psychologically verifiable associations and must state irregularities with care; the twain can meet if older lexicalist and syntacticist doctrines are not pressed beyond their capabilities.
