Abstract

A number of types of Welsh subordinate clause are introduced by what looks like the preposition i `to', `for'. Earlier research has shown that there are three different lexemes here. It is not unusual for a language to have homophonous lexemes, but these lexemes share a variety of properties, and also share properties with the preposition i. The similarities and the differences among these lexemes can be captured if they are grouped together as four different realisations of a single `super-lexeme' within the hierarchical lexicon.
