This article proposes a Nanosyntactic Late-Insertion approach to root suppletion.
We show that this theory allows us to account for root suppletion
within a strictly modular theory of grammar, which makes no syntactic distinction
between different roots. As a starting point, we first focus on the
architectural difficulties that arise for a modular theory of roots in the Distributed
Morphology approach. We then show how Nanosyntax circumvents
these problems, and address two potential empirical issues for the Nanosyntactic
treatment (multiple exponence and locality), showing that they in fact
provide support for the approach proposed.
