Structural relations between grammatical categories (here, morphological and phonological) are governed by a single family of constraints under Optimality Theory: these demand that one type of grammatical constituent share a designated edge with some other type of constituent. Evidence is considered from footing patterns, infixability, epenthesis, syllabification, and prosodic subcategorization.
