Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

de Lacy, Paul (2011)

Abstract

De Lacy argues that there are no clear cases of morpho-phonological polarity. Voicing polarity in Luo is argued to follow from affixation of featurally underspecified segments which coalesce with base segments and thus effectively overwrite features of base segments. For other cases of alleged polarity it is shown that either the empirical data are hitherto unconclusive or that an alternative analysis in terms of purely morphological polarity (or pol,arizing homophony of markers for different lexical classes) cannot be excluded.
