This paper was presented at Linguistics at Santa Cruz [LASC] 1999,
University of California, Santa Cruz.
In this paper, I argue against the emergence of the unmarked prosodic
structure analysis of truncation in Benua 1995, 1998, which has two
problems: a ranking paradox for Icelandic, and an undesirable
requirement to ignore faithfulness to the underlying representation.
I provide solutions to these problems by extending base-reduplicant
correspondence (McCarthy and Prince 1995) to allow other morphemes
the ability to trigger "intra-representational correspondence" (IRC).
In particular, I assume that TRUNC, the morpheme which induces
truncation, is a morpheme that can trigger IRC in a similar way that
the reduplication morpheme RED does.
This analysis has three benefits: (i) it avoids the ranking paradox
from the EoU analysis of Icelandic, (ii) it does not require that
input-output faithfulness be ignored in the case of truncation, and
(iii) it provides a way to unify various patterns in French
hypcoristic formation, in which truncation, reduplication, and
metathesis are utilized depending on the shape of the base form
