Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Bye, Patrik (2006)

Abstract

Bye argues in a vein with Paster (2005,2006) and contra Mester (1994), Kager (1996), Perlmutter (1998), Bonet et al. (2006) that phonologically conditioned suppletion is not generally due to phonological optimization/markedness reduction, but to lexical subcategorization of single affixes. Subcategorization is achieved by inviolable morpholexical constraints. Bye assumes for independent reasons that subcategorization/morpholexical constraints apply simultaneously or after phonological optimization. To account for cases of opaque allomorph selection (cf. Aranovich and Orgun 2006), Bye considers the possibility to invoke Containment Theory.
