Description

The aim of the present paper is to provide a unified account for the phonological behavior of schwa in Moroccan Amazigh and Moroccan Arabic, which reveals a number of salient affinities in the prosodic phonology of the two languages. Building on the work done so far on these languages, our approach is framed in Optimality Theory (OT) (Prince and Smolensky, 1993/ 2004; McCarthy and Prince, 1993a, 1995, 1999 and related works).
