West Greenlandic evidence against a morphological tier of linguistic representation
This paper is an attempt to demonstrate how the morphological phenomena found in West Greenlandic and other polysynthetic languages are best accounted for within a simple, truly word-based theory of morphology, without the use of morphemes, morpho-phonological rules, or anything else that could remotely justify the existence of a morphological level of linguistic representation.
