Quantitative Consequences of Rhythmic Organization
Conference on Parameters in Phonology (1989); an AIO course in Amsterdam (1989); Brandeis University (1990); CLS 26 (1990); and at UMass, Amherst (1990). I am grateful to the members of thoseExpand
Weak Layering and Word Binarity
This paper, originally written in 1992 and widely circulated at the time as a working paper (Linguistic Research Center, LRC-92-09, University of California, Santa Cruz), contributed, together withExpand
Light verbs and 'th'-marking
Licensing and underspecification in optimality theory
Les As. tentent de resoudre un type de paradoxe de sous-specification en adaptant les notions de classement des contraintes et de violabilite fournies par la Theorie de l'Optimalite. Ils examinentExpand
Markedness and Word Structure : OCP Effects in Japanese
ing away from any ordering due to multiple violation of single constraints, (16) shows the harmonic ordering of candidates induced by (15) (see Prince & Smolensky 1993, 68-71 for the notation). CurlyExpand
Japanese Morphophonemics: Markedness and Word Structure
The sound pattern of Japanese, with its characteristic pitch accent system and rich segmental alternations, has played an important role in modern phonology, from structuralist phonemics to currentExpand
The Phonological Lexicon
at Santa Cruz and by the National Science Foundation under grant SBR-9510868 “The Structure of the Phonological Lexicon”. The names of the authors appear in alphabetical order. We are grateful to DanExpand
Prosodic subcategories in Japanese
We propose a recursion-based approach to the syntax–prosody mapping, which allows us to strengthen the theory on the category side, and limit the interface categories to a small and universally well-defined set. Expand
The Syllable in Optimality Theory: On the Sources of Opacity in OT: Coda Processes in German
Optimality Theory (OT) is built on output constraints. These constraints impose conflicting demands on candidates and are all violable, with precedence regulated by universal and languageparticularExpand
