On the Complexity and Typology of Inflectional Morphological Systems
Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics, 2019.
We quantify the linguistic complexity of different languagesu0027 morphological systems. We verify that there is an empirical trade-off between paradigm size and irregularity: a languageu0027s inflectional paradigms may be either large in size or highly irregular, but never both. Our methodology measures paradigm irregularity as the entro...More
