This chapter develops the theory of prosodic adjustment. It discusses heavy-syllable prefixal reduplication in the related Austronesian languages Mokilese, Ponapean, Agta, and Ilocano. It examines the range of variation in juncture insertion coupled with the range of variation in prosodic adjustment, and shows that there is a good fit between the attested reduplication patterns and the predictions of Distributed Reduplication (DR).
