(p.25) 3 Biuniqueness and Monosystemicity
Fundamental Concepts in Phonology

Ken Lodge

Edinburgh University Press

The assumptions of biuniqueness and monosystemicity in phonological systems are challenged. Both assumptions obscure differences of function within a system and complicates analysis. Morphophonemic alternations and unique underliers are discussed in relation to monosystemicity. The tension between polysystemicity and generalizations is also discussed.

Keywords:   Biuniqueness, monosystemicity, morphophonemic alternations, unique underliers, polysystemicity
