A split analysis of nasal harmony in Mbyá

Guillaume Pierre Yves Thomas

Resumo


This paper proposes an optimality theoretic analysis of nasal harmony in Mbyá Guaraní. I propose that nasal harmony in Mbyá is best understood as the product of two distinct phenomena: (i) nasal harmony between adjacent syllable nuclei and (ii) nasal coarticulation from a vowel to an adjacent consonant edge. The proposed analysis, which is laid out in optimality theory (OT), is inspired by the work of Piggott and van der Hulst (1997).
