Deklarative prosodische Morphologie
Constraint-basierte Analysen und Computermodelle zum Finnischen und Tigrinya
[Declarative Prosodic Morphology. Constraint-based analyses and computational models of Finnish and Tigrinya]
Series:Linguistische Arbeiten 399
Aims and Scope
This volume covers the declarative analysis of prosodic morphology using inviolable constraints. In this context, syllable-based restrictions not only govern individual segmental alternations but also influence the surface shape of entire word forms. Starting with theoretical and formal foundations within the framework of computational phonology, the book then develops novel theories of the both geminate representation and the analysis of 'non-concatenative' morphologies. The theories receive application via two computational in-depth studies of consonant alternations in Finnish and Tigrinya verbs.
