Syllable recycling reduplication:
A specific result of a comprehensive theory of infixing reduplication

by Philip Spaelti

In some dialects of West Tarangan, many reduplicated forms have the reduplication incorporated into an existing syllable.

This can be explained, without stipulation, by the theory of infixing reduplication proposed in Spaelti (1997).

This explanation has the advantage of also providing an account, in terms of different constraint ranking, of the variation between dialects that show this pattern, and those that do not.
