Description

This paper reopens the question of whether two distinct phrasal categories are truly necessary. Is a model of prosodic parsing possible that accounts for all the facts, both in Japanese and in other languages,  with a single phonological phrase category? We will argue that such a conception is not only possible, but in fact necessary: multiple categories create problems.
