    The Semantics of Compounds in Swedish Child Language2016In: The Semantics of Compounding / [ed] Pius ten Hacken, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2016, p. 110-128Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the semantics of NN compounds produced by Swedish children. Three questions are addressed: What is the head’s status in the children’s compounds? What semantic relations are found within the compounds? What is the frequency of these relations, in total and per child? The data contains 387 spontaneously produced novel NN compounds from three monolingual Swedish children, collected longitudinally along with contextual information. The study shows that all children manage right-hand head position. It suggests that around 15 semantic relations, based on previous lists proposed by e.g. Jackendoff (2009; 2016), can account for almost all of the children’s compounds. Some relations are however more frequent than others. There seem to be individual preferences for particular semantic relations. Yet, two tendencies appear: (i) in all children, some relations are frequent (e.g. Purpose, Composition, Location) others rare; (ii) almost all relations are used by all children. In conclusion, although the number of compounds produced by each child is limited, a range of relations is attested. In relation to overall cognitive development, some compounds provide evidence that children indeed make further distinctions from adult speakers, and that they have understanding of the semantic content of their coinages.

    Agent Nouns, Productivity and Diachrony: An Analysis of [VN/A]N/A Compounds and €-eur Derivations in French2007In: On-line Proceedings of the Fifth Mediterranean Morphology Meeting (MMM5) Fréjus 15-18 September 2005 / [ed] G. Booij et al., Bologna: Università degli Studi di Bologna , 2007, p. 359-378Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses the semantic structure of two types of French agent nouns, [VN/A] N/A compounds (porte-drapeau) and -eur derivations (porteur) from a diachronic perspective. The focus is on established words listed in the TLFi. The main objective is to question Dressler’s (1986) hierarchy of Agent: Human Agent > Animal Agent > Plant > Impersonal Agent > Instrument > Locative, which proposes that meaning extension diachronically follows this direction. My previous research results show that, synchronically, the Instrument is the most productive/profitable meaning for the [VN/A] N/Aformation. The diachronic results of this study likewise fail to confirm the hierarchy. In particular, the semantic structure of the [VN/A] N/Aviolates the direction implied by the hierarchy. Hence, I reach the conclusion that the different meanings in the polysemy of Agent can be more or less central for different types of agent formations, i.e. both derivations and compounds; the Agent is not necessarily always the primary meaning from which all others originate. This hypothesis will be further examined in future studies that take into account other agentive formations in French and contrast them with similar formations in Swedish.

    Classification, Headedness and Pluralization: Corpus Evidence from French Compounds2007In: Acta Linguistica Hungarica, Vol. 54, no 3, p. 341-360Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the relation between headedness and pluralization in French compounds attested in a newspaper corpus. It leans on the classification of compounds proposed by Bisetto and Scalise (2005) that distinguishes between subordinate, attributive or coordinate, and additionally, endocentric or exocentric. However, as to what item constitutes a compound in French, it follows the much more restricted definition of Corbin (1992), inter alia . My result indicates that French compounds exhibit double marking, i.e., both on the head and externally, as to pluralization. In a larger perspective, this result can indicate a tendency towards external pluralization in French.

    French Translations of Swedish NN Compounds: With Special Focus on Translation Techniques2016In: Meaning in translation: Illusion of precision / [ed] Larisa Ilynska & Marina Platonova, Cambridge: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2016, p. 261-280Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines Swedish NN compounds and their French translations in a bidirectional parallel corpus. A total of 1,741 Swedish NN compounds were attested and 81% corresponded to N or to N A or N de (Det) N constructions in French. The frequency of Swedish NN compounds differs depending on whether the text is source text or target text as well as on text genre (fiction vs. non-fiction) and the style of the author or translator. This work has also classified 1,027 French translations of Swedish NN compounds based on their translation technique. Established equivalent was by far the most frequent technique followed by Generalization. The remaining techniques, such as Modulation, Transposition,and Explicitation, were rarely used. A conclusion drawn from this work is that it is difficult to maintain a strict division between translation studies and contrastive linguistics in an analysis of word formation and translation techniques.

    La formation agentive en français: les composés [VN/A/Adv/P]N/A et les dérivé™s V-ant, V-eur et V-oir(e)2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses the French morphological construction [VN/A/Adv/P]N/A. The main objectives are to posit a single rule for its formation and to question the implications of the agent polysemy. The theoretical framework is lexeme-based morphology, which adheres to weak lexicalism.

    The first part of our analysis is qualitative and concerns the availability aspect of productivity. The method is introspective. The internal semantic patterns of the French construction are examined. Our results give evidence for the claim that a single morphological construction rule, [VN/A/Adv/P]N/A, is responsible for the cases where the first constituent is a verb stem, and the second constituent may correspond to an internal argument, an external argument or a semantic adjunct. All cases manifest the same patterns, which are related to the denotative meanings included in the agent polysemy: Agent, Instrument, Locative, Action, Result and Cause. Our contrastive analysis shows that the same patterns are found in the four Swedish agentive formations, [N/A/Adv/PV-are]N, [N/A/Adv/PV]N, [N/A/Adv/PV-a]N and [VN]N, which correspond to the French [VN/A/Adv/P]N/A construction and which also contain a verbal constituent and its internal or external argument, or an adjunct.

    The second part of our analysis is quantitative and concerns the profitability aspect of productivity. The method is inductive. The aim is to explore the polysemy of agent and its assumed hierarchical structure, in synchrony and diachrony. Four French agentive formations, [VN/A/Adv/P]N/A compounds and V-ant, V-eur and V-oir(e) derivations, are included in order to examine semantic competition and blocking effects. Our results give evidence for the existence of an agent polysemy but deny that it has a hierarchical structure valid for every agentive formation. The meanings in the agent polysemy are more or less profitable according to formation type: blocking effects could explain this behaviour.

    Les composés francais VN: Aspects sémantiques2011In: Revue Romane, ISSN ISSN 0035-3906, EISSN 1600-0811, Vol. 46, no 1, p. 69-88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses the semantics of French VN compounds within a lexeme-based and lexicalistic approach to morphology. The N constituent can correspond to one of the two semantic macroroles: PATIENT (ouvre-boîte) or ACTOR (croque-monsieur). In addition, there is a special type of unproductive VN compound in which the N is a hyperonym of the hyponym compound (gratte-boësse). The study confirms that there are no strict constraints on the V and the N: the four Aktionsarten, as well as unaccusative and inergative Vs, are accepted. Moreover, it shows that the compounds are formed by different semantic patterns : Agent/Experiencer, Instrument, Locative, Causative, Event and Patient/Theme. The Agent/Experiencer and Instrument patterns in which the N is a PATIENT are the most productive ones.

    Lexical Representation of Agentive Nominal Compounds in French and Swedish.2010In: Research in Computing Science, Special Issue: Natural Language Processing and its Applications, ISSN 1870-4069, Vol. 46, no Special Issue, p. 3-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses the lexical representation of French VN andSwedish NV-areagentive nominal compounds. The objective is to examinetheir semantic structure and output meaning. The analysis shows that, as a resultof their semantic structure, the compounds group into some major outputmeanings. Most frequently, the N constituent corresponds to an Undergoer inthe argument structure of the V constituent, and the compound displays anActor role, which more precisely denote entities such as Persons, Animals,Plants, Impersonals, Instruments or Locatives, specified in the Telic role in theQualia. We propose that the Agentive role can be left unspecified with regard toaction modality. In conclusion, our study proposes a unified semantic accountof the French and Swedish compounds, which can have applications for NLPsystems, particularly for disambiguation and machine translation tasks.

    Semantic structure and meaning within agentive nominal compounds: Evidence from French and Swedish2010In: Word Structure, ISSN 1750-1245, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 181-204Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses agentive nominal compounds in French and Swedish containing N and V constituents. French has only one such compound, VN, whereas Swedish has at least four, NV-are, NV-a, NV and VN. The study explores the semantic characteristics of their constituents and their semantic structures. Formal aspects are also considered within a lexeme-based morphology. The analysis shows that, although French and Swedish compounds differ formally, they share more or less the same semantics. Their V constituent takes one or more arguments, and their N constituents display several semantic roles. Semantically, the compounds generally denote an Actor of verbs taking two arguments, and the N constituents denote an Undergoer, except in Swedish VN compounds, which denote an entity which fills the same role as that of the N constituent, generally an Actor. Non argumental interpretations, such as Place or Event, are less frequent. In conclusion, the study can have typological value for the semantics of agentive nominal compounds.

    The polysemy of agent nouns: diachronic, synchronic and contrastive evidence from French and Swedish2011In: STUF - Language Typology and Universals, ISSN 1867-8319, Vol. 64, no 1, p. 53-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses Agent polysemy diachronically, synchronically, and contrastively. It examines the semantic structure of three French agentive formations, [VN/A]N/A compounds, and derivations with ‑eur and ‑ant. The semantics of four Swedish agentive formations which correspond to French [VN/A]N/A compounds are also studied. My results suggest that the polysemy of Agent is not uniformly hierarchically structured, with the Agent on top, for different agentive formations. They do not confirm that semantic extension emanates from the Agent. Instead, they speak in favour of blocking as the most plausible explanation for Agent polysemy and meaning extension.

    Children’s novel NN compounding in Swedish diary data: function and form2018In: Morphology, ISSN 1871-5621, E-ISSN 1871-5656, Vol. 28, no 3, p. 229-252Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores formal aspects and functions of 420 novel noun-noun (NN) compounds in diary data from three Swedish children (1;9–6;11). With regard to form, the data show that the children’s compounds respect target head order, allow for a small amount of internal inflection, and, in more than half of the cases where a liaison form is required, are properly formed. Most of the compounds concatenate two nouns (without the presence of liaison forms), as is the general case for Swedish NN compounds. With regard to function, the data permit us to distinguish three main functions of the coinages: I. Novel compound instead of established term, II. Novel compound for novel category, and III. Novel compound for specific entity. Type I involves attempts to target conventional compounds by relying either on perceptual or functional features or on recalled semantic, phonological, and/or morphological cues. Type II is innovative compounding par excellence: detailed discriminations and fantasy concepts are named. Type III divides into anaphoric and deictic uses as well as what we call appropriation, i.e. naming a specific entity. Types II and III are functions displayed by novel compounds in general. In conclusion, the three children seem to master the central facets of NN compounds, formally and functionally. Furthermore, compound production can constitute a simple and efficient means for young children to maximize and build more structure into their lexicon.

    Non-established NN compounding in child language as reflections of early categorization2016In: Lingue e linguaggio, ISSN 1720-9331, Vol. 1, p. 107-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses one aspect of conceptual development, viz. categorization, in connection with children’s compounding. It is based on diary data of 392 non-established NN compounds, spontaneously produced between age 1–6 by three Swedish children. The aim is to investigate in what domains their compounds, or conceptual combinations, are situated, and to analyse them with focus on categorization. We show that children use familiar items in compounding: more than one third of the N1s and N2s belong to the same morphological family. Taxonomically, the domains of food, clothes, animals and vehicles predominate among the compounds. The two major scripts are Eating and Getting dressed. Our data permits us to trace other categorization types as well, such as thematic, evaluative and ad hoc. Compounds relying on perceptual features, mainly shape and prints, do occur, notwithstanding that general background knowledge and abstract representations intervene. Tendencies to cross-classify entities are shown. Moreover, the children tend to subcategorize at a more detailed level than adults do, which might suggest that they have fewer, but more specified, categories in their so far limited lexicon. In conclusion, subcategorization by compounding can be seen as a powerful means for children to develop their conceptual system.
