Example text

For Jackendoff, the relationship between unhelpfulness and unhelpful, the relationship between unhelpful and helpful, that between helpful and helpN, and that between helpN and helpV will all be expressed by redundancy rules like (21). For Aronoff, the mechanism will be a Morphology and the lexicon 39 series of word-formation rules, each operating on the output of the last. 2, affixes are neither introduced by WFRs nor ‘detached’ by redundancy rules from the words to which they belong, but are listed in the lexicon in their own right.

This question is not discussed in ‘Remarks’, however. 4 Halle’s ‘Prolegomena to a theory of word formation’ As its name implies, Halle’s ‘Prolegomena to a theory of word formation’ (1973) is primarily concerned with the internal structure of morphologically complex words. Even so, Halle’s view of word formation still assigns a crucial role to the lexicon, in something like Chomsky’s sense. Word formation is not an extension of syntax ‘below’ the level of the word; indeed, Halle is at pains to emphasise differences between word structure and sentence structure which militate against any such view.

Jackendoff takes care of this parallelism by listing kick the bucket in the lexicon, but with an internal structure which is syntactic rather than morphological; the role of redundancy rule is played here by the syntactic principles (whatever they are) which determine the structure of verb phrases. This redundancy rule ensures that kick the bucket ‘costs’ less than syntactically more or less anomalous idioms such as run full tilt or bring to book. But Jackendoff himself does not consider the treatment of idioms in any detail; for him, as for Chomsky, the prototypical lexical item is a word.
