On derived domains in sentence phonology

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  20 October 2008

Elisabeth Selkirk*
University of Massachusetts, Amherst


This paper deals with two distinct but inextricably connected sets of questions in the area of sentence phonology. The first concerns the organisation of sentence phonology and the nature of the phonological representation(s) of the sentence, and the second the relation between syntactic structure and phonological representation.
