Abstract:
			
This book explores effects of speech perception strategies upon
morphological structure. Using connectionist modeling, perception and
production experiments, and calculations over lexica, Jennifer Hay
investigates the role of two factors known to be relevant to speech
perception: phonotactics and lexical frequency.

Hay demonstrates that low probability phoneme transitions across
morpheme boundaries exert a considerable force toward the maintenance
of complex words, and argues that the relative frequency of the
derived form and the base significantly affects the decomposability of
complex words. While many have claimed that high frequency forms do
not tend to be decomposed, Hay asserts that this follows only when
such forms are more frequent than the bases they contain.

The results of Hay's experiments illustrate the tight connection
between speech processing, lexical representations, and aspects of
linguistic competence. The likelihood that a form will be parsed
during speech perception has profound consequences, from its
grammaticality as a base of affixation, through to fine details of its
implementation in the phonetics.

Abstract:
			
This book investigates various phenomena affecting both stressed and
unstressed vowels in Romance languages. Viola Miglio traces vowel
changes within this language family, such as those that occurred
during the Great Vowel Shift. Using examples from Catalan, Mantuan,
and Portuguese, this book analyzes vowel reduction, including
"neutralization," which involves a change of vowel quality in
stressless syllables that favors vowel qualities that are maximally
distinguishable from one another. This analysis provides
classifications of vowel reduction phenomena through the interaction
of markedness constraints, markedness cooccurrence constraints, and
faithfulness and positional faithfulness constraints.
