Gregory Stump
Professor Emeritus of Linguistics
Department of English

In recent years, my research has focused on the theory and typology of inflectional morphology:

  • In a series of publications, I have argued for an inferential-realizational theory of inflectional morphology known as Paradigm Function Morphology.  Most recently I have been investigating the role of inflectional paradigms as a grammatical interface and the algebra of morphotactics.
  • Together with Raphael Finkel, I have argued for a novel approach to morphological typology based on the implicative patterns in a language's inflectional paradigms.

From 2006 through 2020, I served as co-editor of the journal Word Structure (Edinburgh University Press).

In 2017, I was inducted as a Fellow of the Linguistic Society of America:
