Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

de Lacy, Paul (1999)

Abstract

Based on several suggestive case studies, de Lacy argues that haplology is coalescence in a correspondence-theoretic version of Optimality Theory rather than deletion of one of the identical morphemes Moreover, he claims that there are no explicit constraints penalizing identical adjacent strings. Coalescence follows from independent markedness constraints and the fact that coalesced structure avoids most tgypes of faithfulness violations.
