This groundbreaking study takes a novel approach to reduplication, a phenomenon whereby languages use repetition to create new words. Sharon Inkelas and Cheryl Zoll present a new model of reduplication--Morphological Doubling Theory --that derives the full range of reduplication patterns. This approach argues for a theoretical shift in phonology that entails more attention to word structure.


1. Introduction; 2. Evidence for morphological doubling; 3. Morphologically conditioned phonology in reduplication: the daughters; 4. Morphologically conditioned phonology in reduplication: the mother node; 5. Morphologically-driven opacity in reduplication; 6. Case-studies; 7. Final issues.


Sharon Inkelas is Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics, University of California at Berkeley. Cheryl Zoll is Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.


'... [Inkelas and Zoll] should ... be applauded for their discussion and analysis of both classic and less well-known reduplication patterns. Calling the field's attention to some of these sources of data and the importance of specific patterns is invaluable.' Journal of Linguistics 'I regard this book as a valuable and stimulating contribution to the revived study of reduplication. It is surely a must for every scholar who wants to come to grips with reduplication - no matter what his/her theoretical convictions are ...' Language Typology and Universals
