Title:Mòoré tonal polarity
Abstract:Mòoré, a tonal language spoken primarily in Burkina Faso, is governed by two high-ranking markedness constraints: tonal polarity and the spreading of high tones. High tone spreading is dominated by tonal polarity in Mòoré nouns, meaning that adjacent tone-bearing units never have identical tones within the same word. This paper describes the interaction between tonal polarity, the spreading of high tones, and other active constraints within the Mòoré language.
