  • An Opacity Problem in Mayo Reduplication 

    Haugen, Jason D. (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 2004-01-01)
    The phonological realization of heavy syllable reduplicants in Mayo (Uto-Aztecan) depends on the location of the accent in the unreduplicated form. Because the accent shifts after reduplication this creates an opacity in ...
  • Proto Algic VI: Conditioned Yurok Reflexes of Proto Algic Vowels 

    Proulx, Paul (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 2004-01-01)
    Berman (1982) proposed a loss of vowel length as one of two apparent phonological innovations shared by Wiyot and Yurok, but not Algonquian, implying a Ritwan subgrouping within Algic. However, once the Yurok reflexes of ...

  • Relativizer 'illi' in Arabic Dialects 

    Galal, Mohamed (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 2004-01-01)
    According to the grammars of Arabic dialects illi only occurs following a definite head noun. However, based on fresh data from Brustad (2000), the relative marker illi is also found to occur following an indefinite head ...
  • The Iambic Law: Quantitative Adjustment in Typological Perspective 

    Mellander, Evan (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 2004-01-01)
    Many processes of Quantitative Adjustment (QA) in natural language are seen to follow from the Iambic/Trochaic Law (ITL), a basic principle of rhythmic organisation which favours quantitative evenness in trochaic systems ...

    Galal, Mohamed (University of Kansas. Linguistics Graduate Student Association, 2004-01-01)
    Cairene Arabic (CA) elects epenthesis as a strategy for adapting loanwords. This paper tackles the reasons why this occurs as well as the different aspects of vowel epenthesis within the framework of Optimality Theory ...
