Extract

§ 1. The purpose of the following account is to show that the morphological rule for pluralization of nouns in Brazilian Portuguese can be simply expressed given (a) a basic representation for morphs which might be said to be ‘independently justified’ by alternations elsewhere in the morphology of the language, and (b) a set of phonological rules operating on and modifying the basic representation, the majority of which again seem to be widely applicable in Portuguese morphophonology.
