Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Gafos, Adamantios I. (1998b)

Abstract

Reduplicative morphemes which do not have a fixed shape that matches a prosodic constituent (syllable or foot) present a persistent problem for McCarthy & Prince’s (1986, 1993) widely accepted prosodic account of reduplicative morpheme form. These two articles discuss several such cases and propose that the output form of these reduplicative morphemes is derived through the interaction of phonotactic and markedness constraints. Markedness constraints favor minimal realization of the reduplicative morpheme; phonotactic constraints favor enough reduplication to provide, for example, Onsets for reduplicative (and other) morphemes.
