This chapter develops the theory of truncated reduplication, in which the base is copied, subject to truncation in either the base or reduplicant. This is related to Steriade’s (1988) idea that reduplication consists of total stem reduplication coupled with truncation. The interaction of copying and truncation is complex, with a rich array of possibilities. It shows that many instances of metathesis as well as infixation are best analyzed as varieties of truncated reduplication.

Keywords:   truncation, reduplication, copying, metathesis, infixation
