Do Phonological Representations Specify Variables? Evidence from the Obligatory Contour Principle.
Berent, Iris; Everett, Daniel L.; Shimron, Joseph
Cognitive Psychology, v42 n1 p1-60 Feb 2001
Studied the representation of two variables, the root morpheme and the identity in the Hebrew language by investigating the Obligatory Contour Principle (J. McCarthy, 1986). Three experiments involving 24, 22, and 24 college students suggest that linguistic representations specify variables. Speakers' competence, however, is governed by violable constraints. (SLD)
