Bermúdez-Otero, Ricardo 2016 We do not need structuralist morphemes, but we do need constituent structureMorphological Metatheory, Siddiqi, Daniel and Heidi Harley (eds.), pp. 387–430 | Article
In the prethematic high~mid alternation of Spanish third-conjugation verbs, allomorph selection by phonological subcategorization in the morphology interacts with allomorph selection by phonotactic optimization in the phonology, pace Paster (2015). The cyclic locality conditions on this alternation… read more
Bermúdez-Otero, Ricardo and John Payne 2011 There are no special cliticsMorphology and its Interfaces, Galani, Alexandra, Glyn Hicks and George Tsoulas (eds.), pp. 57–96 | Article
The hypothesis of Clitic Idiosyncrasy holds that special clitics are neither words nor affixes, but constitute a separate type of object whose behaviour is partly governed by dedicated grammatical mechanisms. In an influential implementation of this idea, Judith L. Klavans and Stephen R. Anderson… read more
Bermúdez-Otero, Ricardo 2006 Morphological structure and phonological domains in Spanish denominal derivationOptimality-Theoretic Studies in Spanish Phonology, Martínez-Gil, Fernando and Sonia Colina (eds.), pp. 278–311 | Article
In Spanish denominal derivation, the stem formative of the base typically disappears before the derivational suffix: e.g. man-o ‘hand’, man-az-a ‘hand.AUG’, *man-o-az-a. This pattern can be analysed in two ways: as driven by a morphotactic restriction, or as created by a morphophonological process… read more
