Drawing on evidence from Latin, Old Norse, Sanskrit, and other languages, I discuss mismatches between content and form that emerge through the comparison of distinct paradigms belonging to the same syntactic category; some such mismatches involve the realization of the same content by distinct morphology, while others involve the realization of distinct content by the same morphology. I use this evidence to extend the theoretical conclusions of Lectures 1 and 2.
