Level Ordering and Economy in the Lexical Phonology of Turkish.
Inkelas, Sharon; Orgun, Cemil Orhan
Language, v71 n4 p763-93 Dec 1995
Supports the theory of level ordering by demonstrating, on the basis of productive morphology and phonology, that Turkish has four lexical levels. The first is the principle of Level Economy, which accounts for systematic exceptionality. The second is Level Prespecification, which exempts a root entirely from early lexical levels. Both of these mechanisms rely on a structural approach. (82 references) (Author/CK)
