Phonological Architecture

Bridget D. Samuels

Oxford University Press

‘Representations & Primitive Operations’ begins with a discussion of the organization of phonological structures such as features, segments, and syllables. It then presents a theory of phonological rule application and morphological concatenation based on formalization of the primitive operations search, copy, and delete, illustrated with examples of affixation, reduplication, harmony, and other phonological rules. The possible evolutionary origins of these primitive operations are also discussed.

Keywords:   biolinguistics, phonology, affixation, reduplication, harmony
