Dr. Hossep Dolatian (Stony Brook University) at the 19th SIGMORPHON Workshop on Computational
Research in Phonetics, Phonology, and Morphology.
Logical Transductions for the Typology of Ditransitive Prosody
Given the empirical landscape of possible prosodic parses, this paper examines the computations required to formalize the mapping from syntactic structure to prosodic structure. In particular, we use logical tree transductions to define the prosodic mapping of ditransitive verb phrases in SVO languages, building off of the typology described in Kalivoda (2018). Explicit formalization of syntax-prosody mapping revealed a number of unanswered questions relating to the fine details of theoretical assumptions behind prosodic mapping.
