This poster was presented on 2021 April 8 - 11 at the 39th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics.

Provided abstract:
Data from language contact support the following view of roots:
• Roots are devoid of categorical information
• Roots merge with (overt or covert) categorizers in the syntax
• The realization of roots and their functional vocabulary as identified in work on language mixing informs theories of what a word is, how it is built, and how concepts are lexicalized across languages
