Why prefixes (almost) never participate in vowel harmony. Lexical Issues in the Architecture of the Language Faculty, Padovan, Andrea (ed.), pp. 84–1112020.

In languages with affixal morphology, suffixes and prefixes are the most common types of affixes. Despite several proposals, it has been impossible to identify solid… read more | Article
Variation and change in Italian phonology: On the mutual dependence of grammar and lexicon in Optimality Theory. Theoretical Approaches to Linguistic Variation, Bidese, Ermenegildo, Federica Cognola and Manuela Caterina Moroni (eds.), pp. 205–2362016.
In this paper I discuss the influence of language acquisition and borrowing on the reorganisation of grammar and lexicon in the development from Latin into Italian.
