Book Information


Title: The Prosody-Morphology Interface
Edited By: René Kager
Wim Zonneveld
Harry van der Hulst

In many languages, word formation is restricted by principles of prosody
that organize speech sounds into larger units such as the syllable. Written
by an international team of leading linguists in the field of prosodic
morphology, this book examines a range of key issues in the interaction of
word formation and prosody. It provides an explanation for nonconcatenative
morphology that occurs in different forms (such as reduplication) in many
languages, by an interaction of independent general principles of prosodic
and morphological well-formedness.
