Abstract:Structural relations between grammatical categories (here,

morphological and phonological) are governed by a single family of

constraints under Optimality Theory: these demand that one type of

grammatical constituent share a designated edge with some other type

of constituent. Evidence is considered from footing patterns,

infixability, epenthesis, syllabification, and prosodic

subcategorization.
