Magnetic Grammar
Roberta D'Alessandro, Marc Van Oostendorp
January 2020

This article is an attempt to unify tools for linguistic analysis across modules (in particular for syntax and phonology). We propose that linguistic representations have two types of primitives: syntactic and phonological items (of the X, XP, feature sort in syntax, and of the feature, segment, syllable, foot sort in phonology) on the one hand, and forces operating on those primitives on the other hand. In this article, we focus on features. Comments and suggestions very welcome! r.dalessandro AT marc AT
