There are many CC onset combinations permitted in English phonotactics, as in black, bread, trick, twin, flat and throw. English can actually have larger onset clusters, as in the words stress and splat, consisting of three initial consonants CCC. The phonotactics of these larger onset consonant clusters is not too difficult to describe.

You can check if this description is adequate for the combinations in splash, spring, strong, scream and square. Does the description also cover the second syllable in the pronunciation of exclaim? Remember that it is the onset of the syllable that is being described, not the beginning of the word. It is quite unusual for languages to have consonant clusters of this type. Indeed, the syllable structure of many languages e.

Japanese is predominantly CV. It is also noticeable in English that large consonant clusters may be reduced in casual Follow The Great Giant Rabbit Full Of Hate - Various - Grrr.

(Cassette) tional speech, particularly if they occur in the middle of a word. This is just one example of a process that is usually discussed in terms of coarticulation effects. Coarticulation effects In much of the preceding discussion, we have been describing speech sounds in syllables and words as if they are always pronounced carefully and deliberately, almost in slow motion. Mostly our talk is fast and spontaneous, and it requires our articulators to move from one sound to the next without stopping.

The process of making one sound almost at the same time as the next sound is called coarticulation. There are two well-known coarticulation effects, described as assimilation and elision. Vowels are also subject to assimilation. In many words spoken carefully, the vowel receives stress, but in the course of ordinary everyday talk, that vowel may no longer receive any stress and naturally reduce to schwa.

Elision In the last example, illustrating the normal pronunciation of you and me, the [d] sound of the word and was not included in the transcription. This process of not pro- nouncing a sound segment that might be present in the deliberately careful pronunci- ation of a word in isolation is described as elision.

In fact, consistently avoiding the regular patterns of assimilation and elision used in a lan- guage would result in extremely artificial-sounding talk. The point of investigating these phonological processes is not to arrive at a set of rules about how a language should be pronounced, but to try to come to an understanding of the regularities and patterns which underlie the actual use of sounds in language. The sound patterns of language 49 Study questions 1 What is the difference between a phoneme and an allophone?

B In the phonology of Hawaiian there are only open syllables. Also, based on this slender evidence, which two English consonants are probably not phonemes in Hawaiian? C The word central has a consonant cluster -ntr- in the middle and two syllables.

D Individual sounds are described as segments. What are suprasegmentals? E The English words lesson and little are typically pronounced with syllabic consonants. F A general distinction can be made among languages depending on their basic rhythm, whether they have syllable-timing or stress-timing. How are these two types of rhythm distinguished and which type characterizes the pronunciation of English, French and Spanish?

How would you describe the special phonological processes involved in the pronunciation of the negative versions of the following words? II The use of plural -s in English has three different, but very regular, phonological alternatives. For background reading, see chapter 2 pages 55—56 of Jeffries, Bob Belviso translated One attempt to interpret those very unusual spellings might be as follows: Once upon a time was three bears; mama bear, papa bear, and baby bear.

Live in the country near the forest. No mortgage. One day papa, mama, and baby go beach, only they forget to lock the door. By and by comes Goldilocks. She got nothing to do but make trouble.

She push all the food down the mouth; no leave a crumb. Then she goes upstairs and sleeps in all the beds. Further reading Basic treatments Davenport, M. Murray Spangler invented a device which he called an electric suction sweeper. This device eventually became very popular and could have been known as a spangler. People could have been spanglering their floors or they might even have spanglered their rugs and curtains.

The use could have extended to a type of person who droned on and on and really suckeddescribed as spanglerish, or to a whole style of behavior called spanglerism. However, none of that happened. Word formation 53 Instead, Mr. Spangler sold his new invention to a local businessman called William H. The point of this small tale is that, although we had never heard of Mr. Spangler before, we really had no difficulty coping with the new words: spangler, spanglerish, spanglerism, spanglering or spanglered.

That is, we can very quickly understand a new word in our language a neologism and accept the use of different forms of that new word. This ability must derive in part from the fact that there is a lot of regularity in the word-formation processes in a language. In this chapter, we will explore some of the basic processes by which new words are created. When we look closely at the etymol- ogies of less technical words, we soon discover that there are many different ways in which new words can enter the language.

We should keep in mind that these processes have been at work in the language for some time and a lot of words in daily use today were, at one time, considered barbaric misuses of the language. Yet many new words can cause similar outcries as they come into use today.

Rather than act as if the language is being debased, we might prefer to view the constant evolution of new words and new uses of old words as a reassuring sign of vitality and creativeness in the way a language is shaped by the needs of its users.

Coinage One of the least common processes of word formation in English is coinage, that is, the invention of totally new terms. The most typical sources are invented trade names for commercial products that become general terms usually without capital letters for any version of that product. It may be that there is an obscure technical origin e.

The most salient contemporary example of coinage is the word google. New words based on the name of a person or a place are called eponyms. When we talked about a hoover or even a spanglerwe were using an eponym. Other common eponyms are sandwich from the eighteenth-century Earl of Sandwich who first insisted on having his bread and meat together while gambling and jeans from the Italian city of Genoa where the type of cloth was first made.

Some eponyms are technical terms, based on the names of those who first discovered or invented things, such as fahrenheit from the German, Gabriel Fahrenheitvolt from the Italian, Alessandro Volta and watt from the Scottish inventor, James Watt.

Borrowing As Bill Bryson observed in the quotation presented earlier, one of the most common sources of new words in English is the process simply labeled borrowing, that is, the taking over of words from other languages. Throughout its history, the English language has adopted a vast number of words from other languages, including croissant Frenchdope Dutchlilac Persianpiano Italianpretzel Germansofa Arabictattoo Tahitiantycoon Japaneseyogurt Turkish and zebra Bantu.

In some cases, the borrowed words may be used with quite different meanings, as in the contemporary German use of the English words partner and look in the phrase im Partnerlook to describe two people who are together and are wearing similar clothing.

There is no equivalent use of this expression in English. The English expression moment of truth is believed to be a calque from the Spanish phrase el momento de la verdad, though not restricted to the original use as the final thrust of the sword to end a bullfight.

Compounding In some of the examples we have just considered, there is a joining of two separate words to produce a single form. Thus, Lehn and Wort are combined to produce Lehnwort in German. This combining process, technically known as compounding, is very common in languages such as German and English, but much less common in languages such as French and Spanish. Common English compounds are bookcase, doorknob, fingerprint, sunburn, textbook, wallpaper, wastebasket and waterbed.

All these examples are nouns, but we can also create compound adjectives good-looking, low-paid and compounds of adjective fast plus noun food as in a fast-food restau- rant or a full-time job. Blending The combination of two separate forms to produce a single new term is also present in the process called blending. However, blending is typically accomplished by taking only the beginning of one word and joining it to the end of the other word.

There is also the word fax, but that is not a blend. Clipping The element of reduction that is noticeable in blending is even more apparent in the process described as clipping. This occurs when a word of more than one syllable facsimile is reduced to a shorter form faxusually beginning in casual speech. The term gasoline is still used, but most people talk about gas, using the clipped form.

Other common examples are ad advertisementbra brassierecab cabrioletcondo condominiumfan fanaticflu influenzaperm permanent wavephone, plane and pub public house. There must be something about educational environments that encourages clipping because so many words get reduced, as in chem, exam, gym, lab, math, phys-ed, poly- sci, prof and typo. A particular type of reduction, favored in Australian and British English, produces forms technically known as hypocorisms.

In this process, a longer word is reduced to a single syllable, then -y or -ie is added to the end. You can probably guess what Chrissy pressies are. Backformation A very specialized type of reduction process is known as backformation. A good example of backformation is the process whereby the noun television first came into use and then the verb televise was created from it.

One very regular source of backformed verbs in English is based on the common pattern worker — work. The assumption seems to have been that if there is a noun ending in -er or something close in soundthen we can create a verb for what that noun -er does.

Hence, an editor will edit, a sculptor will sculpt and burglars, peddlers and swindlers will burgle, peddle and swindle. Conversion A change in the function of a word, as for example when a noun comes to be used as a verb without any reductionis generally known as conversion. The conversion process is particularly productive in Modern English, with new uses occurring frequently.

The conversion can involve verbs becoming nouns, with guess, must and spy as the sources of a guess, a must and a spy. Phrasal verbs to print out, to take over also become nouns a printout, a takeover.

Verbs see through, stand up also become adjectives, as in see-through material or a stand-up comedian. Or adjectives, as in a dirty floor, an empty room, some crazy ideas and those nasty people, can become the verbs to dirty and to empty, or the nouns a crazy and the nasty.

Some compound nouns have assumed adjectival or verbal functions, exemplified by the ball park appearing in a ball-park figure or asking someone to ball-park an estimate of the cost. Follow The Great Giant Rabbit Full Of Hate - Various - Grrr. (Cassette) nouns of this type are carpool, mastermind, microwave and quarter- back, which are all regularly used as verbs. The verb to doctor often has a negative sense, not normally associated with the source noun a doctor.

A similar kind of reanalysis of meaning is taking place with respect to the noun total and the verb run around, which do not have negative meanings. Acronyms Acronyms are new words formed from the initial letters of a set of other words.

Some new acronyms come into general use so quickly that many speakers do not think of their component meanings. Derivation In our list so far, we have not dealt with what is by far the most common word- formation process to be found in the production of new English words.

Some familiar examples are the elements un- mis- pre- -ful, -less, -ish, -ism and -ness which appear in words like unhappy, misrepresent, prejudge, joyful, careless, boyish, terrorism and sadness. Word formation 59 Prefixes and suffixes Looking more closely at the preceding group of words, we can see that some affixes have to be added to the beginning of the word e. These are called prefixes. Other affixes have to be added to the end of the word e. All English words formed by this derivational process have either prefixes or suffixes, or both.

Thus, mislead has a prefix, disrespectful has both a prefix and a suffix, and foolishness has two suffixes. Infixes There is a third type of affix, not normally used in English, but found in some other languages. This is called an infix and, as the term suggests, it is an affix that is incorporated inside another word.

It is possible to see the general principle at work in certain expressions, occasionally used in fortuitous or aggravating circumstances by emotionally aroused English speakers: Hallebloodylujah! The expletive may even have an infixed element, as in godtripledammit!. However, a much better set of examples can be provided from Kamhmu, a language spoken in South East Asia.

Multiple processes Although we have concentrated on each of these word-formation processes in isola- tion, it is possible to trace the operation of more than one process at work in the creation of a particular word. For example, the term deli seems to have become a common American English expression via a process of first borrowing delicatessen from German and then clipping that borrowed form. If someone says that problems with the project have snowballed, the final word can be analyzed as an example of compounding in which snow and ball were combined to form the noun snowball, which was then turned into a verb through conversion.

Forms that begin as acronyms can also go through other processes, as in the use of lase as a verb, the result of backformation from laser. The formation of this new word, however, was helped by a quite different process, known simply as analogy, whereby new words are formed to be similar in some way to existing words. Yuppie was made possible as a new word by analogy with the earlier word hippie and another short-lived analogy yippie.

One joke has it that yippies just grew up to be yuppies. And the process continues. Many of these new words can, of course, have a very brief life-span. It would seem that Noah had a keener sense than his critics of which new word-forms in the language were going to last. Word formation 61 Study questions 1 What is the difference between etymology and entomology?

How would you describe the other s? Can you identify the processes involved in each case? Were there any examples in this chapter? How many examples were included in this chapter?

Are any of them eponyms? Using a dictionary if necessary, try to describe the word-formation processes involved in the creation of the underlined words in these sentences. E Another type of affix is called a circumfix. Here are some examples from Indonesian. F When Hmong speakers from Laos and Vietnam settled in the USA, they had to create some new words for the different objects and experiences they encountered. Using the following translations provided by Bruce Downing and Judy Fullercan you work out the English equivalents of the Hmong expressions listed below?

Using the examples below, and any others that you want to include in the discussion, try to decide if there are any typical patterns in the way we form compounds. From these examples, and any others that you think might be relevant to the discussion, can you work out what the rule s might be for making new adjectives with the suffix -able?

Further reading Basic treatments Denning, K. Kessler and W. Spencer and A. Zwicky eds. Naish, C. Rensch and G. Unfortunately, there are a number of problems with using this observation as the basis of an attempt to describe language in general, and individual linguistic forms in particular.

For example, in Swahili spoken throughout East Africathe form nitakupenda conveys what, in English, would have to be represented as something like I will love you. Now, is the Swahili form a single word? We can recognize that English word forms such as talks, talker, talked and talking must consist of one element talk, and a number of other elements such as -s, -er, -ed and -ing.

All these elements are described as morphemes. In the sentence The police reopened the investigation, the word reopened consists of three morphemes. The word tourists also contains three morphemes. Free and bound morphemes From these examples, we can make a broad distinction between two types of mor- phemes.

There are free morphemes, that is, morphemes that can stand by themselves as single words, for example, open and tour. There are also bound morphemes, which are those forms that cannot normally stand alone and are typically attached to another form, exemplified as re- -ist, -ed, -s.

These forms were described in Chapter 5 as affixes. So, we can say that all affixes prefixes and suffixes in English are bound morphemes. The free morphemes can generally be identified as the set of separate English word forms such as basic nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc.

When they are used with bound morphemes attached, the basic word forms are technically known as stems. For example: undressed carelessness un- dress -ed care -less -ness prefix stem suffix stem suffix suffix bound free bound free bound bound We should note that this type of description is a partial simplification of the morpho- logical facts of English.

There are a number of English words in which the element treated as the stem is not, in fact, a free morpheme. In words such as receive, reduce and repeat, we can identify the bound morpheme re- at the beginning, but the elements -ceive, -duce and -peat are not separate word forms and hence cannot be free mor- phemes. Lexical and functional morphemes What we have described as free morphemes fall into two categories.

These free morphemes are called lexical morphemes and some examples are: girl, man, house, tiger, sad, long, yellow, sincere, open, look, follow, break. Morphology 69 Other types of free morphemes are called functional morphemes. Examples are and, but, when, because, on, near, above, in, the, that, it, them. This set consists largely of the functional words in the language such as conjunctions, prepositions, articles and pronouns. Derivational and inflectional morphemes The set of affixes that make up the category of bound morphemes can also be divided into two types.

One type is described in Chapter 5 in terms of the derivation of words. These are the derivational morphemes. We use these bound morphemes to make new words or to make words of a different grammatical category from the stem. For example, the addition of the derivational morpheme -ness changes the adjective good to the noun goodness. The noun care can become the adjectives careful or careless by the addition of the derivational morphemes -ful or -less.

A list of derivational morphemes will include suffixes such as the -ish in foolish, -ly in quickly, and the -ment in payment. The list will also include prefixes such as re- pre- ex- mis- co- un- and many more. The second set of bound morphemes contains what are called inflectional mor- phemes.

These are not used to produce new words in the language, but rather to indicate aspects of the grammatical function of a word. Inflectional morphemes are used to show if a word is plural or singular, if it is past tense or not, and if it is a comparative or possessive form. One likes to have fun and is always laughing. The other liked to read as a child and has always taken things seriously.

One type is described in Chapter 5 in terms of the derivation of words. These are the derivational morphemes. We use these bound morphemes to make new words or to make words of a different grammatical category from the stem. For example, the addition of the derivational morpheme -ness changes the adjective good to the noun goodness.

The noun care can become the adjectives careful or careless by the addition of the derivational morphemes -ful or -less. A list of derivational morphemes will include suffixes such as the -ish in foolish, -ly in quickly, and the -ment in payment.

These are not used to produce new words in the language, but rather to indicate aspects of the grammatical function of a word.

Inflectional morphemes are used to show if a word is plural or singular, if it is past tense or not, and if it is a comparative or possessive form. One likes to have fun and is always laughing. The other liked to read as a child and has always taken things seriously. One is the loudest person in the house and the other is quieter than a mouse. There are four inflections attached to verbs: -s 3rd person singular-ing present participle-ed past tense and -en past participle.

There are two inflections attached to adjectives: -er comparative and -est superlative. In English, all the inflectional morphemes are suffixes.

Morphological description The difference between derivational and inflectional morphemes is worth emphasiz- ing. An inflectional morpheme never changes the grammatical category of a word. For example, both old and older are adjectives. The -er inflection here from Old English -ra simply creates a different version of the adjective. However, a derivational mor- pheme can change the grammatical category of a word.

The verb teach becomes the noun teacher if we Follow The Great Giant Rabbit Full Of Hate - Various - Grrr. (Cassette) the derivational morpheme -er from Old English -ere. So, the suffix -er in Modern English can be an inflectional morpheme as part of an adjective and also a distinct derivational morpheme as part of a noun.

Whenever there is a derivational suffix and an inflectional suffix attached to the same word, they always appear in that order. First the derivational -er is attached to teach, then the inflectional -s is added to produce teachers.

So far, we have only considered examples of English words in which the different morphemes are easily identifiable as separate elements.

The inflectional morpheme -s is added to cat and we get the plural cats. What is the inflectional morpheme that makes sheep the plural of sheep, or men the plural of man?

And if -al is the derivational suffix added to the stem institution to give us institutional, then can we take -al off the word legal to get the stem leg?

For example, the relationship between law and legal is a reflection of the historical influence of different languages on English word forms. The modern form law is a result of a borrowing into Old English lagu from a Scandinavian source over 1, years ago. Consequently, there is no derivational relationship between the noun law and the adjective legal in English, nor between the noun mouth from Old English and the adjective oral a Latin borrowing.

An extremely large number of English words owe their morphological patterning to languages like Latin and Greek. Consequently, a full description of English morphology will have to take account of both historical influences and the effect of borrowed elements. Morphs and allomorphs One way to treat differences in inflectional morphemes is by proposing variation in morphological realization rules.

In order to do this, we draw an analogy with some processes already noted in phonology Chapter 4. Just as we treated phones as the actual phonetic realization of phonemes, so we can propose morphs as the actual forms used to realize morphemes.

Yet they are all allomorphs of the one morpheme. Other languages When we look at the morphology of other languages, we can find other forms and patterns realizing the basic types of morphemes we have identified. The first example below is from English and the second from a language called Aztec from Central America. In both cases, we attach a derivational morpheme to a stem, then add an inflectional morpheme.

In the following examples, from a range of languages originally described in Gleasonwe can try to work out how different forms in the languages are used to realize morphological processes and features. Kanuri This first set of examples is from Kanuri, a language spoken in Nigeria. Discovering a regular morphological feature of this type will enable us to make certain predictions when we encounter other forms in the language. Ganda Different languages also employ different means to produce inflectional marking on forms.

Here are some examples from Ganda, a language spoken in Uganda. Ilocano When we look at Ilocano, a language of the Philippines, we find a quite different way of marking plurals. When the first part is bi- in the singular, the plural begins with this form repeated bibi. There are many languages that use this repetition device as a means of inflectional marking.

Tagalog Here are some other intriguing examples from Tagalog, another language spoken in the Philippines. It is an example of an infix described in Chapter 5. In the third example in each column, note that the change in form involves, in each case, a repetition of the first syllable. So, the marking of future reference in Tagalog appears to be accomplished via reduplication. As we have been exploring all these different morphological processes, we have moved from the basic structure of words to a consideration of some topics traditionally associated with grammar.

We will focus more fully on issues relating to grammar in the next chapter. Morphology 75 Study questions 1 What are the functional morphemes in the following sentence? When he arrived in the morning, the old man had an umbrella and a large plastic bag full of books. Was there an example of an English suppletive form described in this chapter? B The selection of appropriate allomorphs is based on three different effects: lexical conditioning, morphological conditioning or phonological conditioning.

What type of conditioning do you think is involved in the relationship between the words in each of the following pairs? Does English have both? What are some typical English examples? D Using what you learned about Swahili and information provided in the set of examples below, create appropriate forms as translations of the English expressions 1—6 that follow.

F Using what you learned about Tagalog, plus information from the set of examples here, create appropriate forms of these verbs for 1—10 below. This would suggest that the forms which have the regular plural affix -s follow a different rule in compounding than irregular plural forms such as mice.

Can you think of a way to state a rule or sequence of rules that would accommodate all the examples given here? II In Turkish, there is some variation in the plural inflection.
