Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Lappe, Sabine (2007)

Abstract

This book provides an empirical study as well as a theoretical account for English truncatory morphology. One main claim is that different truncatory patterns must be distinguished in one language: once different patterns are identified (in sum, six patterns of name truncations and clipping in English), it is shown that their structural properties are highly predictable and systematic. For example the preference for monosyllabic templates for names or the avoidance of marked phonological structure in the truncated form. Assuming the framework of Prosodic Morphology, an OT-account for the English truncatory patterns is provided.
