Book: Syntax Prosody in Optimality Theory
Chapter: 9. Syntax and Visibility Determine Constraint Interactions
This chapter explores the interactions of two of the interpretations of StrongStart and EqualSisters, with each other and with Match constraints, highlighting the role that the space of syntactic inputs plays in shaping the nature of these interactions. In particular, we examine the consequences of treating the X′ level of syntax as (in)visible to Match constraints.
