The Morphosyntax-Phonology Connection: Locality and Directionality at the Interface

Vera Gribanova and Stephanie S. Shih


The essays in this volume address a core question about the structure of linguistic systems: how much access do grammatical components (syntax, morphology, and phonology) have to each other? Each essay argues in favor of a particular view of the interaction of these components. Each sheds light on the nature of locality domains for allomorph selection, the morphosyntactic properties of the targets of phonological exponence, and adjudicating between the competing theories of morphosyntax-phonology interaction. This volume incorporates insights from recent theoretical developments (e.g., Optimal ... More
