Bracketing Paradox and Direct Compositionality: Montagovian Morphology for  Bound Morphemes - 9781498588102

An essential part of true listening is the discipline of bracketing, the temporary giving up or setting aside of one’s own prejudices, frames of reference and desires so as to experience as far as possible the speaker’s world from the inside, step in inside his or her shoes. Author: M. Scott Peck

This paradox concerns morphologically complex words which have more than one analysis.

Can you resolve the linguistic bracketing paradox by a flatter phonological framework that gives more room for the current highest fluctuational form of language?
