Abstract:Uniform Exponence: Exemplification and Extension

Michael Kenstowicz


This paper exemplifies the constraint of Uniform Exponence. We see

how this constraint elucidates an otherwise mysterious double

retraction of stress in certain plural formations in Russian and the

scope of an allomorphy process in Dominican Spanish. In the body of

the paper we see how a simple typology of stress in five Australian

languages is available when Uniform Exponence for the stress of roots

and affixes is variably ranked with Alignment and Lapse constraints

on good metrical form. The final section of the paper suggests an

extension of the notion uniformity to the effect of a lexical item

on its context.
