    How do speakers process phonological opacities resulting from stem allomorphy in regularly inflected word forms? We advocate a model which holds that these stem allomorphs are derived from a single, abstract lexical representation and do not require multiple access routes. Consequently,...

    The Māori tense/aspect marker ka has historically two allomorphs: one, /ka:/, which is used when the rest of the verb phrase consists of only two morae, and the other, /ka/, for longer phrases. Recordings of native speakers born toward the end of the nineteenth century show that this...

    Three physical parameters have been reported as acoustic correlates of lexical stress both in English and in Spanish: "fundamental frequency (F0), intensity and vowel duration". (Llisterri et al., 2003:163). However, there has been no agreement as to what extent these three parameters interact...
