Hi Adam
I know “phonological word” form P.H. Matthews 1974 Morphology, p. 26.
And earlier P.H. Matthews 1972 Inflectional Morphology p. 8 (p. 96 refers to earlier literature).

Subject: [Lingtyp] history of linguistics: phonological word

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to trace the roots of the development of the concept of "phonological word". Does anyone know who first used this term? The earliest I can find is Dixon's (1977) grammar of Yidin. What about "prosodic word"?

I'm aware that the roots of the idea can be found much earlier than when the concept was first mentioned, but I'm interested in the implicit analogy between a morphosyntactic constituency and phonological constituency and how, when and why that entered linguistics.

Any help would be appreciated.
