The Molinos dialect of Mixtec, like other Mixtec dialects has a twosyllable couplet as the nucleus of the phonological word (K. Pike, 1948: 79-80; Mak, 1953:87; Longacre, 1957:11). The couplet in the Molinos dialect is pertinent in the description of (1) the placement of word stress (see 1.1, Rules 2 and 4), (2) allophones of/k/, /i/, and of nasalized vowels (see 7 and 9), (3) allotones (see 5), (4) the distribution of phonemes (see 10), and (5) in the description of tone sandhi (see 11…

A fraction too much friction: The phonological status of voiced fricatives

Typological work shows that voiced fricatives like /β ð/ occur more often without their voiceless counterparts than with them, contrary to what would be expected on the basis of markedness relations

The languages of Middle America

In this chapter, we present a survey of word prosodic systems in the languages of Middle America (Campbell 1997: Chapter 5). Middle America includes Central America and Mexico. The term ‘Middle

Measuring phonological distance between languages

Three independent approaches tomeasuring cross-language phonological distance are pursued in this thesis: exploiting phonological typological parameters; measuring the cross-entropy of phonologically

Measuring variation in phoneme inventories

For over a century, the phoneme has played a central role in linguistic research. In recent years, collections of phoneme inventories, originally designed for cross-linguistic purposes, have

The power of a single representation: morphological tone and allomorphy

Two case studies of surface alternations in the domain of morphological tone are discussed and monorepresentational optimality theoretic analyses are proposed that predict the apparent suppletive allomorphies from a single underlying representation for the morphemes in question.

The Phonology of Glottalization in Mixtec

Les travaux sur la langue mixtec, synchroniques et diachroniques, ont propose deux approches differentes du statut des occlusives glottales. L'A. montre que ces deux approches sont insuffisantes

Postlexical rules and the status of privative features

Recent work in distinctive features and feature geometry has presented strong evidence that certain features are privative: they have no negative values, so a sound is either marked [F] or else it is

Tone and Prominence

There is a well-established relationship between tone and metrically prominent positions: metrically prominent positions attract high tone, and high toned moras attract metrical prominence. The
