Description

We will argue, following earlier proposals, that the distinct phonological patterns associated with the two affix classes reflect the different ways in which the affixes are incorporated into prosodic structure (Mithun and Basri, 1986; Aronoff et al ., 1987; Friberg and Friberg, 1991; McCarthy and Prince, 1994; Basri, 1999; Selkirk, 1999; Basri et al ., 2000). Affixes like the transi tivizing -i are true suffixes, which adjoin to a stem and form part of the same morphosyntactic and prosodic word as their host. Affixes like the absolutive -i are phrasal clitics which fall outside the morphosyntactic and prosodic word.
