Phase cycles, φ-cycles, and phonological 

MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.

This paper addresses the question of how phases interact with phonology. I argue that phonological operations can affect representations that are &#8220;inactive&#8221; in the phase-theoretic sense, but only in limited ways. Specifically, I hypothesize that only <i>noncyclic</i> phonological processes can violate &#8220;phase impenetrability&#8221;. I suggest further that it is the integrated linear nature of (late) PF representations that allows for this part of phonology to override phase domains. A further hypothesis concerns phase cycles and the cycles of cyclic phonology: I argue that phase cycles and phonological cycles are distinct, and that the latter are triggered on a morpheme- or exponent-specific basis.
