During this provocative paintings, Luigi Burzio argues that many universal assumptions inside of rigidity idea, and phonological thought extra typically, are in truth really arbitrary. He proposes radical departures from fresh culture. partly I he analyzes tension within the underived English lexicon, arguing that the elemental accentual teams or "feet" aren't monosyllabic or bisyllabic, as usually assumed, yet really bisyllabic or trisyllabic.

The above analysis of Italian oxytones is confirmed by Spanish, some dialects of which exhibit the so-called "double" plurals, as in cafe -> cafe-se-s, in contrast to normal hombre -> hombre-s. As noted in Harris (1980), double plurals occur only with oxytones. This fact is straightforward from our point of view: double plurals result from filling in the empty syllable that oxytones must have.

These two different extrametricalities have furthermore different (and apparently arbitrary) orders of application with respect to other rules in the system. In contrast, let us review again the facts from our perspective. We suppose, again, that ternary feet are allowed.
