Wordhood and stress in Garífuna
Maksymilian Dąbkowski
December 2021

Phonological words in Garífuna (Arawakan, ISO 639-3: cab) are characterized by obligatory and culminative stress. I discuss basic stress assignment in morphologically simplex forms. I identify stress as a diagnostic of phonological wordhood in morphologically complex forms. I describe and analyze the word-internal process of vowel hiatus resolution.
