The constraint NOCODA bans consonants from occurring in coda position, and the direction of syllabification stipulated in (9) – right to left – operates in such a way that onsets are created and not codas. For example, assuming the hypothetical underlying representation /prn/, the syllabified form [prn›] (and not [pr›n]) is the predicted outcome according to the basic syllabification rule. This output satisfies NOCODA, while the form [pr›n] incurs one violation of this constraint. Each output is unfaithful (by changing [syllabic] to [+syllabic]) to an underlying segment.
E. they are post-accenting. Halle accounts for these roots by claiming they place a left parenthesis after the last asterisk associated with the root on line 0 of the metrical grid. This left parenthesis results in the syllable to its left (the post-stem syllable) bearing stress. 53 Post-accenting roots should trigger an alignment constraint, as defined in (43). POSTACCENT is satisfied when the morpheme immediately following a post-accenting morpheme bears stress. If the input does not have a post-accenting morpheme, the constraint is vacuously satisfied.
Stems that contain the suffix *ew, *ey, *tew, or *tey). e. e. [im] or [um]. 3). For example, consider the nominative singular form *gwémtus ‘coming’. The accusative form *gwémtum has the same realization for the stem as the nominative form, while the non-occurring form *gwémtwm‹ does not. 2 Endings Although it is believed that PIE inflected for three numbers (singular, dual, and plural), the reconstructions are the most solid for the singular and there is some doubt that PIE inflected for all cases in the dual (Meier-Brügger 2003:191).
