XYZ-effects in phonology and beyond (slides)
Ignas Rudaitis
October 2021

I propose a cross-linguistic recombinant effect in phonology, and perhaps other levels of linguistic structure. 3-tuples of words and pseudo-words that have the structure (XY, XZ, YZ) can be recombined into XYZ. The effect is said to hold if the well-formedness of XY, XZ, and YZ implies the well-formedness of XYZ.
