 Abstract:
 
 Phonologically prominent or "strong" positions are known for their
 ability to resist positional neutralization processes such as vowel
 reduction or place assimilation.  However, there are also cases of
 neutralization that affect only strong positions, as when stressed
 syllables must be heavy, default stress is inserted into roots, or
 word-initial onsets must be low in sonority.  This dissertation shows 
 that phonological processes specific to strong positions are distinct 
 from those involved in classic positional neutralization effects
 because they always serve to augment the strong position with a
 perceptually salient characteristic.  Formally, positional
 augmentation effects are modeled by means of markedness constraints
 relativized to strong positions.  Because positional augmentation
 constraints are subject to certain substantive restrictions, as seen
 in their connection to perceptual salience, they also have
 implications for the relationship between functional grounding and
 phonological theory.
