[Lingtyp] history of linguistics: phonological word

The third of the links in George's message is to a page in Chomsky's 'Aspects' where, crucially, there is a comma between 'phonological' and 'word'. As I read it, he is referring there to two different levels - the phonological level and the word level - and not to the concept of phonological word.

Hi, Adam,

However I can't find this notion in Trubetskoy and SPE, but the earliest that I found were this<https://books.google.ru/books?id=AbxIAQAAIAAJ&q=%22phonological+word%22&dq=%22phonological+word%22&hl=pl&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjD2qH1kf7fAhVGT30KHcLYBXY4ZBDoAQiuBTBZ>, this<https://books.google.ru/books?id=Se87AAAAIAAJ&pg=PA55&dq=%22phonological+word%22&hl=pl&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjkiOaWkf7fAhVEXCsKHeTfAXoQ6AEIxgMwNQ#v=onepage&q=%22phonological%20word%22&f=false> and this<https://books.google.ru/books?id=u0ksbFqagU8C&pg=PA223&dq=%22phonological+word%22&hl=pl&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjD2qH1kf7fAhVGT30KHcLYBXY4ZBDoAQjyAjAr#v=onepage&q=%22phonological%20word%22&f=false>.

All the best,

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.
