In this course we discuss segmental processes in the indigenous languages of the Americas (e.g., Eskimo-Aleut, Iroquoian, Mayan, Arawakan), and their significance for theoretical models of phonology. An empirical focus of the course are segment-zero alternations (epenthesis and deletion) and the phonology of pharyngeal and laryngeal features. Theoretical emphasis will be on the interaction of phonological processes with morphosyntactic structure in stratal models of morphophonology. Readings:
