Canonical Forms in Prosodic Morphology

Přední strana obálky
This book considers the interaction of morphological and phonological determinants of linguistic form and the degree to which one determines the other. It considers the operation of canonical forms, the invariant syllabic shapes of morphemes and the defining characteristic of prosodic morphology. Dr Downing presents an original theory which she tests on data from a wide variety of languages. Her book will be of central interest to scholars and advanced students of phonology and morphology, and of linguistic theory more generally.

O autorovi (2006)


Laura J. Downing is a Research Fellow at the Centre for General Linguistics, Typology, and Universals Research (ZAS) in Berlin where her work focuses on theoretical issues in prosodic phonology and morphology. Her interest in morphologically-conditioned phonology is represented in a volume she co-edited on Paradigms in Phonological Theory (Oxford). Her current research project at the ZAS is concerned with the prosodic expression of focus in Southern Bantu languages.
