(Partial) Copy Epenthesis in Scottish Gaelic
In Stanton & Zukoff (2018), we argued that you need correspondence in order to analyze the prosodic properties of copy epenthesis in Scottish Gaelic, as well as other languages including Selayarese and Ho-Chunk. Conditioned partial copy epenthesis in Scottish Gaelic helps us refine our theoretical model. We show that front/back agreement in copy epenthesis is an emergence of the unmarked effect, which requires a model with asymmetric correspondence.
