Also, in what component of the grammar do vocalization and deletion occur? From here on, the symbol /•/, following Szpyra (1992), shall be used to represent M-jers when no specific claim is made about feature composition or which tier(s) they might occupy. This is to distinguish M-jers from linear representations, in which the symbol /Y/ has been used. 3 below) but themselves provide nothing with which to syllabify. d. d. ∅ / Context free, but ordered later There is no agreement on this issue. Rubach treats YVoc and YDel as separate rules (where YVoc is cyclic and dependent on another M-jer in the next syllable; YDel is post-cyclic and context free).

I conclude that M-jers are represented on both the skeletal and melodic tiers, and I use data from Sloan’s (1991) dissertation to show that material can exist on both tiers without being linked. I then demonstrate that the vocalization of M-jers in Slavic can be characterized by a rule which links material 25 on the skeletal and melodic tiers when these tiers are followed by an unsyllabified consonant. Chapter Four discusses the nature of syllabification, a process central to my analysis of jers.

This is illustrated in (11) below. (11) YVoc YDel Add ending Rhythmic Law Surface /pi:sYm-/ e -pi:sem-a:x -[⊗pi:sema:x] The YVoc rule cannot precede attachment of the next morpheme (in this case, the genitive plural ending), or else it will apply in all cases. Put another way, it cannot apply to an underived string, a hallmark characteristic of cyclic rules. The YVoc rule must also precede YDel, or else vocalization will never occur. 29 However, for the Rhythmic Law to apply properly, YDel must occur before the inflectional locative plural ending /-a:x/ is attached.
