Description:

Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.


This groundbreaking new study takes a novel approach to reduplication, a
phenomenon whereby languages use repetition to create new words. Sharon
Inkelas and Cheryl Zoll argue that the driving force in reduplication is
identity at the morphosyntactic, not the phonological level, and present a
new model of reduplication - Morphological Doubling Theory - that derives
the full range of reduplication patterns. This approach shifts the focus
away from the relatively small number of cases of phonological
overapplication and underapplication, which have played a major role in
earlier studies, to the larger class of cases where base and reduplicant
diverge phonologically. The authors conclude by arguing for a theoretical
shift in phonology, which entails more attention to word structure. As well
as presenting the authors' pioneering work, this book also provides a
much-needed overview of reduplication, the study of which has become one of
the most contentious in modern phonological theory.
