Title:Directional Syllabification in Generalized Alignment [PASC-3]
Authors:Armin Mester, Jaye Padgett
Abstract:We show in this brief paper that certain directional syllabification effects can be derived in Optimality Theory, without recourse to a serial derivation, by extending to the syllabic level the argument made for directional footing in McCarthy and Prince (1993), who attribute the basic idea to Robert Kirchner. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of the potential benefits and limitations of this conception of directionality effects.
