About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Provides the broadest empirical coverage to date of reduplicative phenomena
    • Integrates phonology and morphology (previously morphology was largely ignored)
    • Provides a much-needed critique of current theories of reduplication
