Message 2: Phonology: Transderivational Identity, L. Benua's Dissertation

Subject: Phonology: Transderivational Identity, L. Benua's Dissertation

(Dissertation, phonology)

L. Benua (University of Massachusetts). Transderivational Identity:
Phonological Relations between Words. Book, $20. To order, visit our
Web page:


This dissertation sets out a theory of phonology-morphology
interaction consistent with parallelist Optimality Theory. The core
idea is that word formation rules -- e.g., affixation of _cat_ to
yield _cats_ -- are mirrored by an identity relation between the
derived word and its base word. This phonological relation, which
holds between two surface forms, is called output-to-output (OO)
correspondence, and is conceived as part of the Correspondence Theory
of faithfulness proposed by McCarthy & Prince (1995). Thus, like
input-to-output (IO) faithfulness, OO-faithfulness is regulated by
ranked and violable constraints in a monostratal grammar.
OO-faithfulness competes with IO-faithfulness (and with markedness
constraints) in the optimization of pairs of related words, or

This theory is motivated by a class of cases in which identity of
related words surpasses what is expected from shared underlying form.
In these cases, a derived word violates a phonotactic pattern to
better resemble its base word -- e.g., _c"ond"ens'ation stresses its
second syllable, and violates a constraint against stress clash, to
achieve identity with its base _c"ond'ense_. Previous analyses of
these patterns rely on serial ordering, allowing _c"ond'ense_ to serve
as an intermediate stage in the derivation of _c"ond"ens'ation_.
OO-correspondence obviates serialism, explaining so-called "cyclic
effects" as the product of constraint ranking in fully parallel

This dissertation will be published by Garland Press in 2000.
