Blocking in Distributed Morphology
Itamar Kastner
August 2020

This chapter has been submitted to an upcoming handbook on Distributed Morphology. The chapter reviews cases of word/word blocking and word/phrase blocking from the literature, clarifying in each case to what extent they fall under the notion of blocking as understood in DM and to what extent they might receive alternative explanations. The main empirical domains include inflection and derivation in English, the synthetic/analytic form of comparatives and superlatives in English, and synthetic/analytic passives in Hebrew and Latin.
