Syllabification across morpheme boundaries
Northern Mexican Spanish
Message 1: Syllabification across morpheme boundaries
From: Dafna Graf <D.Graflet.leidenuniv.nl>
Subject: Syllabification across morpheme boundaries
In my research on the interaction between phonology and morphology in Modern
Hebrew, I'm looking into - among other things - the results of syllabification
morpheme boundaries. This is an old issue, of course, but then OT offers a platform
for new analyses of old observations.
Specifically, I'm interested in the integration of an affix into the
relation to its segmental make-up. In Hebrew, a rather trivial example, the crucial
factor is whether the segment that attaches to the stem is a consonant or a vowel.
Other languages differentiate prefixes-suffixes, may integrate some affixes but not
others, phonotactic restrictions may cause infixation etc. I'm interested in
material to that effect from across languages, and so ask any of you who's working
on or is well familiar with phenomena of that kind to mail a short description with
examples, if possible.
If there are any interesting results I will of course summarize them and post
the Linguist List.

Subject: Northern Mexican Spanish
I am a Graduate Student at UCSB. I am looking for articles, books or
dissertations/theses about Northern Mexican Spanish. If you know bibliography with
regard to phonology and/ or pronunciation, of recent researches into Northern
Mexico and/or Southern USA Spanish, please let me know. Thanks in advance.
