Contemporary Views on Architecture and Representations in Phonology

This chapter examines reduplicative templates and how they can be straightforwardly derived from general principles regarding the modular organization of grammar, computations in phonology, and language acquisition. It outlines the Precedence-Based Phonology (PBP) model of reduplication in comparison with Prosodic Morphology and discusses how the formal representation of reduplication accounts for reduplicative templates. It also demonstrates how a modular approach to morphology and phonology immediately derives the surface appearance of prosodic templates, considers language acquisition in relation to common versus uncommon reduplication patterns, and describes the minimalist theoretical machinery in PBP.

Keywords:   reduplicative templates, grammar, computations, phonology, language acquisition, Precedence-Based Phonology, reduplication, Prosodic Morphology, morphology, minimalist theoretical machinery
