Title:A Metrical Analysis of Syncope in Tlingit
Contributor (author):Cable, Seth
Creator:Cable, Seth
Description:Ts. Abstract: A seemingly idiosyncratic set of verbal prefixes in Tlingit undergo an ellipsis alteration very similar to standard cases of syncope. I argue for a constraint-based analysis of this alternation in which the ellipsis results from constraints governing metrical well formedness. As Tlingit is a tone language which has not been described as having meter, it follows that metrical structure might persist in a language even when the phonological prominence that the structure assigns is not phonetically implemented. This analysis is shown tho explain many of the puzzling nuances of the alteration, including the seemingly idiosyncratic set of prefixes it applies to. 82 pp. Comments: Possibly a M.S. Thesis, unpublished. Our copy is not dated but James Crippen cites it as 2004. Citation: Massachusets Institute of Technology.
