    The first paper is concerned with (noun) incorporation and further elaborates on polysynthesis in different North American languages families, focusing on Inuktitut (Eskimo). Its primary concern is with theoretically controversial topics such as pronominal arguments, and the capacities of morphology in relation to syntax. Citation Information. Problems of Polysynthesis.

Finally, the historical development of the polysynthesis parameter in Nahuatl is.

      This book offers an innovative approach to three interlaced topics: A systematic analysis of the morphosyntatic organization of Nivkh (Paleosiberian); a cross-linguistic investigation of complex noun forms (parallel to complex (polysynthetic) verb forms); and a typology of polysynthesis. Nivkh (Gilyak) is linguistically remarkable because of Reviews: 1. About this Item: Oxford University Press Inc, United States, Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Baker argues that polysynthetic languages - in which verbs are built up of many parts and where one verb can act as a whole sentence - are more than an accidental collection of morphological processes; rather they adopt a systematic way of .

The word "polysynthesis" is composed of the Greek roots poly meaning "many" and synthesis meaning "placing together". In linguistics a word is defined as a unit of meaning that can stand alone in a sentence, and which can be uttered in isolation. Words may be simple, consisting of a single unit of meaning, or they can be complex, formed by combining many small units of.

Well, the linguist Mark Baker doesn't consider it strictly Polysynthetic (in his book The Polysynthesis Parameter), and in the first paragraph you refer to, this article is citing his views.

Inuktitut is given later as an example based either on some uncited source, or on the general agreement that Eskimoan languages are very synthetic.

Her findings provide a valuable platform for reconsidering the issues of polysynthesis, incorporation and compounding. At any rate Mattissen's interpretation of the Nivkh data is a challenge to the current views of the structure of polysynthetic languages.

The book is generally carefully edited an outstanding exemplar of this genre.”. In his book The Polysynthesis Parameter, Baker specifies two features he deems Polysynthesis and incorporation Incorporation has traditionally been understood as the compounding of a noun.

Introduction. This paper provides an overview of the principal themes discussed in the literature on noun incorporation (NI). 1 1 The literature on NI is vast, ranging from major theoretical papers and books to sections of grammars or small sketches of unusual data from particular languages, but while each paper is important in contributing to our overall understanding of the.

The incorporation into the verb of a number of temporal modifiers, tense/mood suffixing of certain non-verbal constituents, and iterative verb-root reduplication are also considered.

In Ch. 8 (–27), H discusses the diachronic development of polysynthesis in Nahuatl. The book concludes in Ch.

This book investigates in detail the grammar of polysynthetic languages--those with very complex verbal morphology. Baker argues that polysynthesis is more than an accidental collection of morphological processes; rather, it is a systematic way of representing predicate-argument relationships that is parallel to but distinct from the system used in /5(1).

At issue is whether agents could conceivably be incorporated, so if they aren't (ever?) part of compounds that make up Type I and subsequently grammaticalized, that would rule them out for incorporation. Reading a bit about Mohawk, the above doesn't seem to be true (aside from agents).
