This work investigates reduplicative phenomena and their interaction with phonological and morphological processes, within an autosegmental theory. The data is primarily from the languages of Indonesia, obtained from field research and unpublished sources written in Indonesian
Reduplication is accomplished by the parafixation of an empty affix synchronously with the base. The affix consists of a prosodic template, possibly dominating segmental timing slots (Cs and Vs). This template associates to the base melody, producing a parallel structure with one melody and two skeleta. The specification of the template in prosodic terms is shown to account for the resultant shape of the affix. The synchronous reduplicative structure accounts for the interaction of reduplication with phonological rules; the rules appear to overapply precisely because there is a single melody. Under-application and transparent application of rules are discussed. The transfer of syllabicity and length distinctions are also seen to be structually derived. Linearization of the reduplicative halves is briefly discussed, as is the determination of which tiers/planes copy
What appears to be segment-changing reduplication is argued to result from four mechanisms: (1) lexical fossilization, (2) prespecification, (3) segment-filling default rules, and (4) segment-changing rules. The last are constrained so as to refer to reduplicative items only in terms of their synchronous structure; this is shown to be a direct extension of Hayes' (1986) Linking Constraint
The interaction of reduplication with prosody and level-ordering is described. The facts of reduplication bear on the structure of the lexical phonology and of morphological tiers. The interaction with stress and syllable structure is discussed, with emphasis on the assignment of stress, and on affixal sensitivity to prosodic structure. Boundary effects derive directly from the characterization of reduplicative skeleta and from level-ordering, in keeping with the elimination of boundaries per se in lexical phonology
