Presentation Transcript


1. 1 Projecting non-lexical phonology from phonetic knowledge Donca Steriade MIT

2. 2 “Phonetics/phonology interactions” • Phonological grammars reflect phonetic constraints articulatory and perceptual limitations • *DD: no voiced obstruent geminate [Podesva 2002; Hayes &Steriade 2003; Kawahara 2004 ] •  Articulation sustained airflow across glottis requires more articulatory adjustments in longer stop closures [Ohala 1981] •  Perception DD, if passively devoiced DD9, more similar to TT ? (D-T) > ? (DD –TT) if DD = [DD9]

3. 3 Phonetic asymmetries of this kind… • are reflected in phonological systems *DD relates to p????????????????????????[d:], … • How do we get from phonetics to grammar? ????? ?(D-T) > ?(DD –TT) to grammar • What is the grammar like? Is *DD the right constraint?

4. 4 Option 1: link via phonetic knowledge • Speaker awareness of perceptual limitations e.g. knowledge that ?(D-T) > ?(DD –TT) • Projects a fragment of the grammar: Ident [±voice]/ [_-long] >> Ident [±voice]/[_+long] [“phonetic knowledge” from Kingston & Diehl (1994): awareness of the perceptual correlates of a contrast & their articulatory implementation.]
