Recursive Patterns in Phonological Phrases

Maartje Schreuder, Dicky Gilbers

Department of Linguistics, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

In this paper we investigate an instance of phonological recursion, more specifically we investigate iterative rule application in phonological phrases. The question is whether or not edge-marking processes, such as early pitch accent placement, can be applied recursively to phonological phrases that are embedded in larger phonological phrases.
