In this paper, I provide a formal account of the diachronic development of the IPP-effect and investigate its relation to what Höhle (2006) calls 3V-phenomena. I will argue that the IPP-effect is the result of a repair operation in the syntax that involves the copying of formal/semantic features of affixes that get displaced due to the particular structure shared by verb formation and verb cluster formation and discuss the implications of this account for the syntax-morphology interface.
