Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Bobaljik, Jonathan (2000)

Abstract

Bobaljik states a generalization about allomorphy in the framework of Distributed Morphology. He assumes that Vocabulary items realize features in terminal nodes in a cyclic fashion from the root outwards. Realized fetaures are deleted on the syntcatic head and only the phonological information is present. This leads to the following predictions about allomorphy: Inward sensitivity can only be triggered by the phonological form of an item, outward sensitivity is conditioned by morphosyntactic features of a head.
