IDENTITY AND NON-IDENTITY EFFECTS IN POLISH TRUNCATED AUGMENTATIVES
Languages of publication
The paper deals with the peculiar phonological properties of truncated augmentatives in Polish which display the effects of both underapplication and overapplication of phonological processes. As such, they resemble clipped forms found in other languages which are also characterized by irregular phonological behaviour. To account for the facts of Polish, an attempt is made to employ a subpart of Optimality Theory known as the Correspondence Theory. It is demonstrated that in spite of its initial appeal, the model in question is incapable of handling the presented data and an alternative account, making crucial reference to the distinction between lexical and postlexical modifications, is offered.
