Abstract:
Morphology and syllable weight have both been shown to affect stress patterns, but these effects are analyzed in different ways. The theoretical goal of this dissertation is to propose a Optimality Theoretic model to account for how morphology influences stress, and to do this in a way that parallels the influence of weight upon stress. Prince (1990) lays out the W scEIGHT- scTO-S scTRESS P scRINCIPLE, formalizing the principle by which heavy syllables attract stress in quantity-sensitive systems. I argue for the M scORPHEME- scTO-S scTRESS P scRINCIPLE, a constraint that forces morphemes to attract stress in morphological stress systems. The W scEIGHT- scTO-S scTRESS P scRINCIPLE has a counterpart, the S scTRESS- scTO-W scEIGHT P scRINCIPLE, which forces stressed syllables to be heavy. The counterpart of the M scORPHEME- scTO-S scTRESS P scRINCIPLE is the S scTRESS- scTO-M scORPHEME P scRINCIPLE, which forces stressed syllables to belong to morphemes. This accounts for systems where epenthetic vowels resist stress assignment.
