Although this feature has been included in the 'morphological features' category of this Inventory, it can be thought of as an interface feature between morphology and phonology. It identifies a morphological relationship, such as one dependent on umlaut or palatalisation, which states that two elements stand in some (morphologically) paradigmatic relationship to each other, without specifying what conditions the alternation. While typically phonological in origin, such features mark relationships which are no longer matters of productive phonology. For discussion and references to further literature, see Corbett & Baerman (2006).
