Title:Lapsed derivations: Ternary stress in Harmonic Serialism
Authors: Francesc Torres-Tamarit, Peter Jurgec
Abstract:We show that *LAPSE cannot generate ternary stress and creates pathologies in
Harmonic Serialism (HS). The constraint *LAPSE works properly only when it can evaluate an entirely metrified string, which is impossible in HS. Only *FootFoot, which refers to metrical constituents rather than the distribution of peaks and troughs, can derive ternarity. This supports an analysis based on non-adjacency of constituent edges; in HS, feet are therefore required.
