Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Caballero, Gabriela (2010)

Abstract

The paper argues that (optional) multiple exponence in Ramaruri is derived in (cyclic optimality-theoretic) morphophonology. Additional exponents are added at the second phonological cycle partially to enhance phonological well-formedness, partially to satisfy Realize Morpheme (Kurisu 2001) which cannot be guaranteed by the first-cycle exponent if the morpheme boundary is phonologically opaque. This captures the observation that the outermost extended exponent is more transparent than the innermost.
