What is natural morphology? The state of the artPart of : Γλωσσολογία ; Vol.13, 2001, pages 7-33
The article is a survey of Natural Morphology's main tenets, particularly focussing on the notions of 'parameter' and 'implicational scale'. The parameters of Natural Morphology represent the formalisation of functions and semiotic principles, which derive from the extralinguistic bases assumed by a functionalist and semiotic model of morphological theory. The specific set of morphological parameters that the author briefly illustrates was first proposed in Crocco Galeas (1998). The exemplification of the parameter of diagrammaticity mainly follows from Dressler's (1985) approach to the theory of Natural Morphology.
