Morphological Autonomy

An extensive system of stress‐conditioned vowel alternations has developed in the history of this form of Rumantsch from purely phonological status to that of phonologically conditioned allomorphy. Synchronically, Surmiran stems must in general have two listed forms, one used when primary stress falls on the last vowel of the stem and the other when this vowel will not bear primary stress. This pattern is most thoroughly exemplified in the verbal system. In my chapter I will discuss its effect elsewhere in the morphology of Surmiran as well.
