Syntactic Priming in Immediate Recall of Sentences
Abstract In two previous papers (Lombardi & Potter, 1992; Potter & Lombardi, 1990) we reported evidence that immediate recall of a sentence requires regeneration from the message level, rather thanExpand
Positional Faithfulness and Voicing Assimilation in Optimality Theory
This paper proposes a set of constraints within the framework of Optimality Theory that accounts for syllable-final laryngeal neutralization and voicing assimilation in obstruent clusters. TheExpand
Regeneration in the short-term recall of sentences
Abstract Verbatim short-term memory for a sentence has been taken as evidence for a surface representation different from the conceptual representation characteristic of longer-term memory. In sevenExpand
Laryngeal features and laryngeal neutralization
Laryngeal neutralization and syllable wellformedness
This paper examines the phenomenon generally described as syllable-final laryngeal neutralization and argues for an analysis based on a positive wellformedness constraint on the presence of feature specifications to account for all and only the environments in which neutralization occurs. Expand
Segmental Phonology in Optimality Theory: Why Place and Voice Are Different: Constraint-Specific Alternations in Optimality Theory
This version differs slightly from the published text due to rewordings introduced in copyediting.
Coronal epenthesis and markedness
Coronals have been claimed to behave as unmarked consonants in epenthesis. Expand
Speed of processing in normal aging: effects of speech rate, linguistic structure, and processing time.
Young and elderly adults heard three types of speech materials varying in both length and degree of semantic and syntactic constraints. Time compression was used to vary speech rates systematicallyExpand

Second language data and constraints on Manner: explaining substitutions for the English interdentals
Substitutions for English interdentals tend to be consistent based on first language (L1): eg. [t] for speakers of Russian, [s] for speakers of Japanese. While the facts suggest that some type of L1Expand
