Displacement is a fundamental property of grammar. Typically, when an
occurrence moves it is pronounced in only one environment. This was
previously viewed as a primitive/irreducible property of grammar. Recent
work, however, suggests that it follows from principled interactions
between the syntactic and phonological components of grammar. As such, the
phonetic character of movement chains can be seen as both a reflection of
and probe into the syntax-phonology interface. This volume deals with
repetition, an atypical outcome of movement operations in which displaced
elements are pronounced multiple times. Although cross-linguistically rare,
the phenomenon obtains robustly in Nupe, a Benue-Congo language of Nigeria.
Repetition raises a tension of the descriptive-explanatory variety. In
order to achieve both measures of adequacy, movement theory must be
supplemented with an account of the conditions that drive and constrain
multiple pronunciation. This book catalogs these conditions, bringing to
light a number of undocumented aspects of Nupe grammar.
