25 p, 555.4 KB Cross-level interactions in Latin : vowel shortening, vowel deletion and vowel gliding / Jacobs, Haike (Radboud University)
Serial and parallel OT differ in the way they account for phonological generalizations referring to more than one level of the prosodic hierarchy. Vowel shortening in Latin is analyzed by McCarthy, Pater & Pruitt (2016) as a case in point. [...]
La versió paral·lela i la serial de la teoria de l'optimitat (TO) difereixen entre sí en la manera com expliquen les generalitzacions fonològiques que es refereixen a més d'un nivell de la jerarquia prosòdica. [...]

14 p, 440.0 KB The contribution of K.-H. Elster to generalized conjugation theory and nonconvex duality / Martínez Legaz, Juan Enrique (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia i d'Història Econòmica)
This article surveys the main contributions of K. -H. Elster to the theory of generalized conjugate functions and its applications to duality in nonconvex optimization.

31 p, 525.2 KB A typological study of vowel interactions in Basque / deCastro-Arrazola, Varun (Leiden University & Meertens Institute) ; Cavirani, Edoardo (Meertens Institute) ; Linke, Kathrin (Leiden University & Meertens Institute) ; Torres-Tamarit, Francesc (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)
The aim of this paper is to check the factorial typology for a set of phonological constraints on vowel interactions in Basque against corpus data (Hualde and Gaminde 1998, Euskararen Herri Hizkeren Atlasa, 'The Basque Dialectological Atlas') with the help of OT-Help 2. [...]

16 p, 103.9 KB Optimal Gaps in Optimal Paradigms / Rice, Curt (University of Tromsø)
This article develops a treatment of phonologically motivated gaps in paradigms within Optimal Paradigms Theory (McCarthy 2001). The gaps are instances of absolute ungrammaticality, i. e. situations in which there is no output for a given input. [...]

28 p, 171.9 KB Geminates and Picard Pronominal Clitic Allomorphy / José, Brian (Indiana University. Department of Linguistics) ; Auger, Julie (Indiana University. Department of French & Italian)
In this paper, we examine five pronominal clitics in Vimeu Picard with a geminate-consonant allomorph. Assuming a doubly-linked (non-moraic) representation of geminates, we attribute the four different patterns observed to four different underlying structures serving as inputs to an OT constraint ranking. [...]

20 p, 198.4 KB Expressing Inflection Tonally / Oostendorp, Marc van (Meertens Instituut. Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences)
In Limburg Dutch, the difference between neuter and feminine agreement on adjectives is expressed by a difference in lexical tone. This paper argues that this distinction is due to a difference in underlying representations and not to a paradigmatic antifaithfulness effect. [...]

24 p, 148.0 KB Morphological Complexity and Prosodic Minimality / Downing, Laura J. (Zentrum für Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft, Typologie und Universalienforschung)
It is widely attested, cross-linguistically, for both words and prosodic morphemes to be required to be minimally bimoraic or disyllabic. Work since McCarthy and Prince (1986) argues that these minimality effects fall out from the Prosodic Hierarchy. [...]

26 p, 339.8 KB Cluster Reduction : Deletion or Coalescence? / Wheelerm, Max W. (University of Sussex. Department of Linguistics & English Language)
I show that a consequence of Correspondence Theory in Optimality Theory is that, for processes such as cluster reduction, if MAX outranks UNIFORMITY, candidates displaying coalescence are preferred to those displaying true deletion. [...]

37 p, 212.5 KB Taking a Free Ride in Morphophonemic Learning / McCarthy, John J. (University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Department of Linguistics)
As language learners begin to analyze morphologically complex words, they face the problem of projecting underlying representations from the morphophonemic alternations that they observe. Research on learnability in Optimality Theory has started to address this problem, and this article deals with one aspect of it. [...]

In Catalan, sequences of sibilants are never pronounced as such. In most contexts all varieties coincide in the «strategies» used to avoid these sequences, namely epenthesis or deletion. Variation is only found in the domain of pronominal clitics (but not with other types of clitics). [...]
En català les seqüències de sibilants no es pronuncien mai com a tals. En la majoria de contextos totes les varietats coincideixen pel que fa a les «estratègies» que utilitzen per evitar aquestes seqüències, que poden ser l'epèntesi o l'elisió. [...]
