Paradigmatic Uniformity and Contrast
This chapter reviews several examples from the contemporary and traditional literature that argue for systematic phonological relations between members of a paradigm that do not satisfy the containment relation of the cycle. Specifically, the output form assigned to a given word depends crucially on a related word in the paradigm that cannot plausibly be treated as an intermediate stage in the derivation. Phenomena of this form are expected if Output–Output faithfulness relations are present in the grammar. But they are surprising from a cyclic point of view in which one word is derived essentially in isolation from its kin.
