Type of English affix-class that triggers interpretation e. e. a cycle) per se in Kaye’s system. By contrast, the word is always an interpretational unit (while, recall, it is not with Halle & Vergnaud: /[parent] hood/). A third contrast is that in Kaye’s system, it is class 2 affixes that are interpretation-triggering, while this privilege was granted to class 1 affixes by Halle & Vergnaud. Finally, the critical difference for the global purpose of this chapter is that the sister of the interpretationtriggering affix, rather than the node that dominates the affix itself, is spelled out in Kaye’s system.

Párent-hood ([parent] in isolation of course comes out as párent). This analysis achieves underapplication by selective spell-out: class 2 affixes do not trigger interpretation, which prevents the stress rule from reapplying. Two more ingredients, however, make crucial contributions to the result: it was already mentioned that roots are always spelled out by themselves – this is nothing that selective spell-out enforces per se. Also, class 1, rather than class 2 affixes, are interpretation-triggering – this choice is not determined by any property of the theory either.

We begin by considering this question. 2. , Pierrehumbert 1980, 2000; Beckman & Pierrehumbert 1986, 1988 and Ladd 2000 provide overviews). Also, this approach puts to use the tools of Prosodic Phonology (among many others, Liberman 1975; Ladd 1986, 1997; Gussenhoven 1992, 2004; Selkirk & Kratzer 2007). As far as I can see, Ladd (1986) was the first to argue that intonation is recursive, in the sense that it requires recursive prosodic structure. Formally speaking, recursion is defined as a structure where a node is dominated by another node of the same kind.
