Example text

43 above. As Steriade (1982: 75) puts it, ‘Kahn’s algorithm… is partly a specification of certain aspects of the English syllable and partly a parsing device’. The second rule that Kahn proposes for syllable structure assignment is as in (5): (5) Rule II a. Ca V . CcCc+1…CaV " " where Cc+1…CaV is a permissible initial cluster but CcCc+1…CaV is not. b. Ca x……x . VC1…CjCj+1…Ca " where C1…Cj is a permissible final cluster but C1…CjCj+1 is not; x standing below a segment indicates that the segment is not associated with any syllable.

041!. 4! remains unsyllabified. McCarthy and Prince state that in such cases ‘unparsed elements are erased upon exit from the level’, in accordance with the principle of Stray Erasure, discussed earlier in Steriade (1982) and Itô (1986). The principal attraction of OT is that there is believed to be a single universal set of constraints, with language-specific differences explained by different rankings of the constraints. The ordering of constraints in OT fulfils the same function as the ordering of rules in Kahn (1976), or the directionality of mapping in Itô (1986).

For example, a difference between Cairene and Iraqi Arabic is that in the former, triconsonantal clusters are broken up by an epenthetic vowel between the second and third consonant, and in the latter, the epenthetic vowel surfaces between the first and second consonants. In both dialects, four-consonantal clusters are broken by an epenthetic vowel between the second and third consonants. Itô demonstrates that the difference in triconsonantal clusters can be accounted for if both dialects are assumed to have CVC templates, but if the directionality of mapping is left-to-right for Cairene and right-to-left for Iraqi, and that the same model also correctly predicts the location of the epenthetic vowel in four-consonant clusters in both dialects.
