This chapter presents an overview of the nature of infixation from both descriptive and theoretical perspectives. It lays out the basic properties of the two main approaches to infixation: Phonological Readjustment and Phonological Subcategorization. It shows that the Phonological Readjustment approach includes much that is local and parochial, and should be discarded in favour of principles of broad applicability.

Keywords:   infixation, infixes, Phonological Readjustment, Phonological Subcategorization, morphological representation, phonological representation
