Explaining universal tendencies and language particulars in analogical change
In other verbs, singular∼plural vowel alternations were not lost, but were simply rearranged. For example, in strong verbs like helfen ‘help’, nemen ‘take’, and geben ‘give’ (classes IIIb, IV and V,Expand
Phonotactic Probability and the Maori Passive: A Computational Approach
TLDR
Three computational experiments suggest that thematic consonants in Maori passives and gerunds are predictable from the phonotactic probabilities of their active counterparts, which has potential implications for allomorphy in other Polynesian languages. Expand
Maximal Words and the Maori Passive
Many languages exhibit Minimal Word conditions: restrictions on the smallest possible Prosodic Word (PrWd) in a language (McCarthy & Prince 1986). In this paper, I propose that there are alsoExpand

The identification of bases in morphological paradigms
TLDR

TLDR
A theory of prosodic domain circumscription is proposed, by means of which rules sensitive to morphological domain may be restricted to a prosodically characterized (sub-)domain in a word or stem. Expand
Identity Avoidance in Phonology and Morphology
TLDR
Findings in this paper support the view of Pierrehumbert (1993a) that identity has broad cognitive roots, and suggest that at least some inputs to the Optimality Grammar must be abstract morphological specifications like PLURAL. Expand
