Expressive Morphology in Russian and Other Languages


Abstract This article is based on my earlier work on Russian expressive morphology Steriopolo (2008, 2009), in which I investigated 30 expressive suffixes in Russian and argued that, although these suffixes comprise a single class in terms of their meaning (or function), they belong to different classes in terms of their syntactic structure (or form). Thus, in Russian, there is no 1: 1 correspondence between form and function of expressives, which has important implications for the syntax–semantic mapping of categorization Wiltschko (2008, 2014). The question arises as to whether it is also true cross-linguistically.
