This chapter examines the No Crossing Constraint, constraints on feature spreading, and the application of phonological rules in structures with “long-distance geminates.” McCarthy’s work on nonconcatenative Semitic morphology plays a central role. It shows that known constraints on feature spreading imply that feature spreading can take place in crossed structures only in very special environments, accounting for why attested instances of overapplication are rare.

Keywords:   No Crossing Constraint, feature spreading, phonological rules, long-distance geminates, nonconcatenative Semitic morphology, overapplication
