Abstract:

This book puts forward an alternative representational model of phonology
which builds upon the CVCV offshoot of Government Phonology. It effectively
combines the insights of other available implementations of CVCV (Scheer’s
Strict CV and Cyran’s CSL) in an original way. The approach is called Double
Licensing Phonology and is based upon the assumption that nuclei license both
the preceding nuclei and the preceding onsets (or clusters). All consonant
clusters are formed by means of a government relation which is either
left-headed (a branching onset) or right-headed (a coda-onset cluster). The
intricate interplay of licensing and government relations is responsible for
the whole array of phonological phenomena, like phonotactics, distribution of
vocalic quantity, vowel-zero alternations, lenition and fortition. The book
signals also a possibility of reducing the morphosyntax-phonology interface to
the representational channel. A new architecture of grammar is proposed, in
which syllabic and melodic phonology are formally dissociated. Argumentation
is built mainly on the data from the Icelandic language, even though examples
from some other languages (e.g. Czech, Faroese, German, Kazakh, Kirghiz) are
occasionally used to back up the main line of thought.
