Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

De Lacy, Paul (2002)

Abstract

De Lacy argues that voicing polarity in Luo is due to two allomorphs, one specified [+voice] and one [-voice]. The constraint MorphDisF (every morpheme has some phonological exponent which is not the exponent of another morpheme) effects that the [+voice] allomorph overwrites [-voice] root obstruents and the the [-voice] allomorph overwrites [+voice] root obstruents. See Wolf (2005,2007) for a similar approach to Luo and related data.
