Kayardild Morphology and Syntax

Chapter 11 implements the analysis of Kayardild inflection in a constraint-based grammar, including the difference between spoken and sung word forms. To account adequately within the framework for partial similarities of form, a set of Lexical Grounding constraints is proposed which constrain input–output correspondences to those which match lexically listed correspondences in some given respect. These are more powerful, in a desirable fashion, than several constraint types used elsewhere, such as realizational constraints. The grammar is implemented as two optimality theoretic strata, one mapping from morphosyntactic representations generated by feature percolation to morphomes, and the other from morphomes to underlying phonological forms. A formalization of phonologically conditioned suppletive allomorphy is given.

Keywords:   Kayardild, realizational morphology, optimality theory, inflection, morphology, lexical grounding, realizational constraint, phonologically conditioned suppletive allomorphy
