Open Questions

The following would be great BMRS-related projects for submitting to AMP 2023.

  1. What restrictions should we put on BMRS for defining natural classes?
  2. What does a tertiary feature system look like in BMRS? See Turkish voicing alternations as described in e.g., Inkelas (1995).
  3. BMRS captures elsewhere condition-type effects well. What about non-derived environment blocking?
  4. What is the status of intermediate representations? See, e.g., Gleim (2019) for a feeding Duke of York analysis of tone-epenthesis interactions in Arapaho.
  5. How does BMRS capture the typology of stress patterns? (E.g., in Gordon 2002)
