The interface between morphology and phonology

Show Summary Details

Preview

The morphological structure of a complex word determines how the constituent morphemes of a word are realized phonetically. The phonological structure of a complex word reflects its morphological structure, but is not isomorphic to that structure. Phonology plays a role in the selection of one from a set of competing affixes. This can be modelled in terms of phonological output conditions.

Keywords: interface; prosodic structure; affix competition; prosodic constraints; prosodic morphology
