Abstract and Keywords

This article applies minimalist concerns to the domain of morphophonology. It advocates a bottom-up approach to phonology, made possible by treating the phonological module as a system of abstract symbolic computation, divorced from phonetic content. This approach has come to be called ‘substance-free phonology’. The article argues that phonologists must stop the practice of ‘substance abuse’, or misguidedly mixing the study of phonological form with the properties of phonetic content.

Keywords: minimalism, morphophonology, abstract symbolic computation, substance-free phonology
