This page allows the user to interact with an implementation of the model of reduplication developed in our manuscript Reduplication as Projection. The model is closely derived from Halle's 2008 approach:
In the paper, the structures are shown to play a role in the application of structure-dependent phonological rules, allowing us to generate so-called "backcopying" effects derivationally.
(We recommend that you read the second section of the paper before proceeding.)
The top-level reduplication domain must be defined by surrounding phonological material with square brackets. For example: given
a[bcd]e, the reduplication domain is
bcd. The edges of a reduplication domain delimit substring projection and nesting.
Within the reduplication domain, the following junctures can be used:
||Define a nested reduplication domain containing material to the left of the juncture in the left branch.|
||Define a nested reduplication domain containing material to the right of the juncture in the right branch.|
||Only interpretable in the left branch: project material to the right of the juncture.|
||Only interpretable in the right branch: project material to the left of the juncture.|
N.B. Our definitions of
> are essentially complements of those presented in Halle 2008 for reasons explained in the paper.
