Be-heading the Word.
Bauer, Laurie
Journal of Linguistics, v26 n1 p1-31 Mar 1990
Examines the notion of "head" in syntax and the extent to which it extends to morphology in English, and discusses the notion of headedness and percolation. The argument is made that percolation in English does not work, casting doubt on the notion of head in morphology. (34 references) (GLR)
