Phonetics and Phonology, Volume 4: Studies in Lexical Phonology focuses on studies done on lexical phonology, including methods, techniques, and approaches involved in the field. The selection first underscores the simultaneity of morphological and prosodic structure, modeling the phonology-morphology interface, and deriving cyclicity. Discussions focus on affixation and cyclicity in prosodic lexical phonology, prosodic lexical phonology, theories of phonology-morphology interaction, phonology preceding morphology, and evidence for simultaneity. The book then examines interaction between modules in lexical phonology and the structure of the slave (Northern Athabaskan) verb. The book ponders on word level, structure preservation and postlexical tonology in Dagbani, and (post) lexical rule application. Topics include context-sensitivity in underspecification, postlexical and lexical tonology, word cycle, and English allophonic rules. The manuscript also tackles rule domains and phonological change, rule reordering and rule generalization in lexical phonology, and blocking in nonderived environments. The selection is a valuable reference for researchers interested in lexical phonology.
