Abstract:In this paper we bring evidence to the effect that asymmetries are basic in the interpretation of the different sorts of objects generated by the grammar. We focus on the properties of morphological configurations, in particular the restrictions imposed on their derivations in order to show that they follow from our hypothesis. We discuss the properties of morphological paradigms, in particular the restrictions imposed on their actual members and their combination with roots in order to show that their properties are accounted for in terms of asymmetrical relations.
