Unifying neoclassical and stem-based compounds: a non-lexical approach

Ana Paula Scher, Vitor Augusto Nóbrega


In this paper, we discuss the structural parallelism present in neoclassical and stem-based compounds to suggest that they are both formed in a uniform fashion, from a single underlying structure. Assuming a non-lexicalist approach to grammar -- viz., the Distributed Morphology framework -- we propose that these compounds' stems are concatenated via a functional projection, in the sense of Di Sciullo (2005, 2009), which receives a one-time categorization. As for the insertion of linking elements, it is the emerged structural configuration that triggers it in the compound structure at the morphological component.
