Author: Hagit Borer
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2013.

Publication:Structuring sense, vol. 3

Hagit Borer develops a new model of word formation, arguing that on the one hand the basic building blocks of language are rigid semantic and syntactic functions, while on the other hand they are roots, which in themselves are but packets of phonological information, and are devoid of both meaning and grammatical properties of any kind.
