Authors:Mingxing Li
Abstract:In this paper, I will argue that i) The so-called Xiamen tonal circle can analyzed as demarcative in nature; ii) two different kinds of reduplicant affixes should be distinguished in the analysis of reduplication of Xiamen dialect. Meanwhile, a derivational analysis and an OT account are given to the tonal aspect of Xiamen reduplication.
