Abstract:

A convincing account of reduplicative phenomena has been a longstanding 
problem for rule-based theories of morphophonology. Many scholars believe 
that derivational phonology is incapable in principle of analyzing reduplication. 
In "Distributed Reduplication", John Frampton demonstrates the adequacy of 
rule-based theories by providing a general account within that framework and 
illustrating his proposal with extensive examples of widely varying 
reduplicatation schemes from many languages. His analysis is based on new 
proposals about the structure of autosegmental representations.

Although Frampton offers many new ideas about the computations that are 
put to use in reduplicative phonology, some fairly radical, his intent is 
conservative: to provide evidence that the model of the phonological 
computation developed by Chomsky and Halle in 1968 is fundamentally 
correct--that surface forms are produced by the successive modification of 
underlying forms. Frampton's theory accounts for the surface properties of 
reduplicative morphemes by operations that are distributed at various points 
in the morphophonology rather than by a single operation applied at a single 
point. Lexical insertion, prosodic adjustment, and copying can each make a 
contribution to the output at different points in the computation of surface 
form.

Frampton discusses particular reduplicative processes in many languages as 
he develops his general theory. The final chapter provides an extensive 
sequence of detailed case studies. Appendixes offer additional material on 
the No Crossing Constraint, the autosegmental structure of reduplicative 
representations, linearization, and concatenative versus nonconcatenative 
morphology. This volume will play a major role in the main debate of current 
phonological research: what is the nature of the phonological computation?
