Title:Locality of Conjunction
Authors:Anna Lubowicz
Comment:Paper to appear in WCCFL 24 proceedings.
Abstract:This article accounts for locality of conjunction (Smolensky 1995) in terms of the locus function for constraint violations (McCarthy 2003, Riggle & Wilson 2004). A formal account is given of the idea that the locally conjoined constraints need to share their locus of violation. In addition, markedness reversals are discussed (Ito & Mester 2002). This proposal is found superior to previous approaches to restricting local conjunction, such as fulcrum (Bakovic 1999, Hewitt & Crowhurst 1996) and domain (Lubowicz 2002, Moreton & Smolensky 2002, Smolensky 1993).
