Plural insertion is constructed plural

By Jochen Trommer

Abstract

Harbour (2003b) argues for a postsyntactic rule which inserts a nonsingular feature in a singular agreement head in the context of other singular agreement heads. In this paper, I argue that ‘plural insertion’ of this type should be reanalyzed as a specific case of contextual allomorphy based on a minimalist featural representation of number categories, and provide a detailed analysis of a similar case in Nocte. I conclude that postsyntactic morphology can be strictly restricted to one operation, vocabulary insertion (Trommer, 1999, 2003b,c)
