Many languages avoid sequences of homophonous elements, be they phonemes or morphemes. It is argued that a single principle underlies all such cases of avoidance, and that this principle can interact with the rest of the grammar resulting in the omission of one morpheme, or forcing a choice between different syntactic outputs. This paper is formulated within Optimality Theory, and makes three main points. First, at least some inputs to the Optimality Grammar must be abstract morphological… Expand
