Cyclicity without containment in Romanian perfects
The Romanian perfect exhibits a form of directional paradigm uniformity: verbal perfect forms adopt the stress and segmental characteristics of the perfect participle. An analysis of this pattern of paradigmatic identity is proposed, which has broader implications for the theory of the phonological cycle.
Keywords: cycle, paradigm uniformity, base-derivative correspondence
