Most current theories of grammar limit the interaction between syntax and lexical morphology. These theories differ, though, on whether they place the mechanism for composing inflected forms in the lexicon along with derivational word formation rules (Strong Lexicalist Hypothesis, SLH) or in some syntactic or phonological component (Weak Lexicalist Hypothesis, WLH).
