Abstract and Keywords

Network Morphology belongs to the family of inferential-realizational theoretical frameworks. This means that paradigms, more specifically the functions which construct them, play an important role. A major feature of Network Morphology is that it is based on defaults and allows for varying degrees of inheritance—from complete to partial—of paradigmatic structures. Network Morphology embraces computational implementation and has been applied to a range of typologically diverse languages. Computational fragments exist for languages belonging to a number of families, including Afro-Asiatic, Austronesian, Chukotko-Kamchatkan, Eskimo-Aleut, Gunwinyguan, Indo-European, Nakh-Daghestanian, Nilotic, and Nuclear Torricelli. It has also been used to model diachronic change.

Keywords: defaults, default inheritance, Network Morphology, regularity, override
