Analyzing infixing language games

Margaret Hardwick

Abstract


This paper examines some analyses of infixing language games. It discards a linear approach and goes on to examine several approaches within an autosegmental framework. After considering analyses using 1) just a CV tier, 2) a CV tier and a syllable tier, and 3) just a syllable tier, the paper will conclude that the optimum analysis is the one using a syllabic tier alone.
