Reduplication: The Computation from Merge to PF

Andrew Nevins, MIT

Novi Sad, 22 July - 2 August 02
An overview of the universal morphological phenomenon of reduplication, a process of affixation that looks like pronouncing part of the same word twice. The course will use the "easy" example of reduplication to compare larger issues in the theory of word formation.

NB: This course will make use of lengthy handouts because there is lots of data to look at. It's all fun data though!

NOTE: None of these are obligatory before the first class. I am putting them here simply as a resource for people who want these made available early.
