The purpose of this project is to create better typological knowledge of inflectional complexity in the world’s languages by studying non-canonical inflectional phenomena on new data coming from less-described languages and by adopting new approaches to better known morphological systems. The goal is to combine typological, formal and quantitative approaches for the system of inflectional systems. Empirical subjects of particular interest are non-concatenative flexion, the continuum between synthesis and periphrasis and the emergence of non-canonical flexion, as well as the emergence of uninflectedness.
