    The editors of this volume, Susan Atkey, Jana Carson, and Michael Dobrovolsky, are pleased to present the twenty-second issue of the Calgary Working Papers in Linguistics published by the Department of Linguistics at the ...
  • Head in Yorùbá derived nouns 

    Adéwọlé, L O (University of Calgary, Arts, Linguistics, University of Calgary, 2000-01)
    Studies on Yorùbá have typically ignored or undervalued the place of word structure within a generative grammar. This neglect has a far reaching effect on the study of the language first, because words are the basic units ...
  • Pronoun acquisition and the morphological feature geometry 

    Hanson, Rebecca (University of Calgary, Arts, Linguistics, University of Calgary, 2000-01)
    The acquisition of pronouns has received limited attention in the literature, and there are few studies which deal with this topic in detail. From the data available, clear and sometimes surprising patterns of uniformity ...
  • Secondary stress in Russian compound words: evidence from poetic metrics 

    Karpacheva, Olga (University of Calgary, Arts, Linguistics, University of Calgary, 2000-01)
    In this paper I argue that it is necessary to distinguish between stress which is inherent in words and stress which is assigned at a phrasal level. More specifically, I argue that secondary stress in Russian compounds is ...
  • Morley Stoney pronouns: a feature geometry 

    Mills, Timothy Ian (University of Calgary, Arts, Linguistics, University of Calgary, 2000-01)
    The pronoun set of Morley Stoney (referred to simply as Stoney from this point) is not complex-it contains only seven forms-but it is organized in a unique way. In this paper, I will argue that, despite its uniqueness, the ...
  • Reduplicative size-segmentism correlations as root-affix asymmetries 

    Urbanczyk, Suzanne (University of Calgary, Arts, Linguistics, University of Calgary, 2000-01)
    While a great deal of research on reduplication has focused on deriving shape invariance or segmental identity, as yet no study has investigated whether there is a correlation between reduplicative size and segmentism. ...
  • A closer look at coalescence: the Slave D-effect* 

    Wilhelm, Andrea (University of Calgary, Arts, Linguistics, University of Calgary, 2000-01)
    I will analyze the Slave D-effect in the framework of Optimality Theory (Prince & Smolensky 1993). My analysis will cover the full range of phenomena and will not refer to morphological information. This makes it superior ...
