Paradigms in Phonological Theory

This chapter examines a number of alternations, showing that paradigm uniformity effects obtain for the object agreement paradigm. The emergence of the root vowel with perfective stems is shown to be a case where paradigm uniformity does not hold within the aspectual paradigm. The chapter begins with an analysis of the reduction of the full vowel to schwa. This is shown to be an instance of overapplication of vowel reduction, which occurs within the object agreement paradigm. The full vowel of the root changes to schwa when it is followed by a stressed full vowel.

Keywords:   paradigm uniformity, object agreement, root vowel, alternations, schwa
