La ordenación de las reglas y la fonología léxica

Paloma García-Bellido


In this paper it has been shown that certain irregularities in the verbal system of Spanish do not need to be explained as a consequence of stipulating two opposite orderings in the Spanish Grammar. We have offered a new alternative within a much more restricted Phonological framework. This alternative makes crucial use of Universal Principles such as The Elsewhere Condition and Level-ordered Morphology. The goal of this paper is to show that only one ordering seems to be possible, moreover that none of the criteria used so far to justify «double ordering» such as «paradigmatic uniformity» and «paradigmatic irregularity» or «preferable» orderings are required any longer in the Theory. This lexical approach has led us to give account not only of irregularities in the verbal Spanish system but also to describe other morphophonological facts of Spanish in a very straightforward fashion.
