Stratal phonology and Russian morphophonology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper analyses a fragment of the morphophonological grammar of Rus-sian, namely the so-called e ~ ’о alternation, within a Lexical Phonology-style stratalmodel. The aim is to demonstrate that the rule shows a range of properties usuallyassociated with stem-level phonology. Thus, on the one hand, Russian data provides further support for a stratal model of morphophonology, and on the other hand stratal models appear to be a productive approach to Russian morphophonologicalal ternations that explicitly links morphophonology with both phonological patterns and the morphological and semantic structure of Russian words.
