D05: Frames in morphophonology: Modeling paradigms as frames

Funding period : 01.07.2015 - 30.06.2019

Project D05 develops frame-based representations of paradigms in morphophonology. Paradigms are sets of word forms related to each other by shared meaning and phonology. D05 proposes to analyze them using frames, which means that a paradigm is hypothesized to consist of a referent, defined by its attributes and their values. The attributes can be morphological or phonological in nature, and, because of the asymmetric structure of a frame, a paradigm is hypothesized to be asymmetric; some forms are more central than others. This way of representing paradigms solves many issues surrounding the theoretical treatment of paradigms.
