Abstract:

This monograph investigates final vowel elision in spoken Italian.
Specifically, the book sheds light on the functioning and the constraining
factors of final vowel elision in sequences of vowel-final determiners followed
by vowel-initial nouns and in sequences of vowel-final proclitics followed by
vowel-initial lexical verbs. The analysis is based on "real" language, that is
on corpus and elicited data as well as on their pooled results. The
quantitative data are analyzed statistically in order to identify the factors
which constrain final vowel elision (i.e. function word class, the morphological
category of number realized by the final elidable vowel, and speech style).
The representation of final vowel elision in determiners and proclitics
proposed in this monograph relies on four theoretical constructs and on their
interaction, i.e pre-compiled phrasal allomorphy, dominant allomorphs,
lexically encoded selectional preferences among allomorphs, and prosodic
rules.

Contents: Final elision in spontaneous speech - Final elision in elicited
speech - Final elision: evidence from spontaneous and elicited speech - The
lexical representation of determiners and proclitics targeted by final elision -
Representation of final elision.

Luigia Garrapa has completed her PhD in Linguistics at the University of
Konstanz, Germany, and at the University of Salento, Italy (Joint PhD). Her
research interests are the phonetics and phonology of Romance languages,
child first language acquisition, and cognitive neurosciences. She is currently
working on the neurophysiological correlates of Italian vowel and consonant
perception by pediatric cochlear implant users.
