Different theories have been provided over the past fifty years arguing and approaching inflection from a lexicalist or functionalist point of view. Other models that explain this linguistic process have been developed, too, as for example Distributed Morphology.

In this work two approaches will receive closer attention: The aim is to contrast and discuss only two of the theories in detail, and hence, to argue in favour of a Word-and-Paradigm approach to inflection. Examples in this work will focus on the inflection of verbs only, since in my opinion the examination of verbs from these two angles will provide the most obvious and efficient arguments in preference of the second theoretical approach.

This paper is organized as follows: Section two will introduce the functional head approaches as proposed by Pollock , Rivero , and Speas The first two parts of this section will introduce the model for Modern English, Albanian and Modern Greek, and show how a tree-structured approach works on explaining inflection.

In the third part Speas' analysis of Navajo will present a strictly argumentative functional head approach.

The end of the section will focus on the critics brought forward by Joseph and Smirniotopoulos on Rivero's work. The functional head approach to inflection 2. The Word-and-Paradigm approach to inflection 3.

Section three focuses on the Word-and-Paradigm approach to inflection as advanced in an early theoretical approach by Robins and followed by Matthews , and Anderson , The model itself, terms and conditions will be presented in the first part, followed by two examples: These two examples will support a Word-and-Paradigm analysis instead of a functionalist analysis of inflection, by pointing at the weakness of the latter model. What does it mean to approach inflection with a functional head model? Obviously, it is a way to explain the linguistic phenomenon of inflection.

The most significant, and therefore, as it will be seen, the most criticized characteristic of this model is that each exponent of an inflected verb is assigned an inflectional category such as Tense, Agreement, Negation, Aspect and Voice. Some of the given examples will show that this correspondence can be depicted in a tree-structure, which bases on the extended X-Bar-Theory, as developed by Chomsky cp.

The production of forms of lexemes, which are traditionally regarded as part of inflectional morphology, would then be considered as a syntactic process Bauer Such proposals, where inflectional categories of verbs are marked within a syntactic process, will be presented in the first part of this section. The second part of the section will focus on the rejection of the functional head approaches as presented in the work of Joseph and Smirniotopoulos , giving a counterview on the functional head approach to Modern Greek verbs as discussed by Rivero It is the purpose of this part to show, how easily a straight-forwarded tree-structured model can lead to false linguistic assumptions concerning an approach to inflection, when it is applied to other languages.
