On Obstruent Voicing in Breton, German, and Italian

Descriptive

Abstract (type = abstract)
In this paper, I investigate seemingly unrelated occurrences of obstruent voicing in derived environments in three different languages: Breton, German, and Italian. This paper aims at giving a unified account of the voicing patterns found in the three languages. I will argue in particular that this voicing effect is closely tied to the alignment of morphological and prosodic categories. The Italian data are used in Kenstowicz (1995) to illustrate his notion of Base-Output Identity. I will argue that an output-output analysis is not compatible with the Italian facts, since there are data which clearly contradict this approach. Instead, the final voicing phenomena in all three languages can be adequately described in a strictly input-output oriented modelof Correspondence Theory.
